Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Why Is Jeep Grand Cherokee Alignment Important?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Jeep Grand Cherokee’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. In an alignment service, the individual angles of your tires are adjusted so that they come into contact with the road in just the right way — the way Jeep intended them to. When your suspension is aligned to Jeep’s optimal measurements, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the lifespan of your tires increases, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Jeep. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

When to Get Jeep Grand Cherokee Wheel Alignment

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Jeep Grand Cherokee alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your Grand Cherokee dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.

How Much Does It Cost for Alignment Service on My Jeep Grand Cherokee?

Let’s talk numbers: Jeep Grand Cherokee wheel alignment might be more budget-friendly than you think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs. Properly aligned wheels may help increase fuel efficiency and tire lifespan, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs.
