An alignment involves making adjustments to your Lincoln MKX's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. During the service, calculated changes are made to the angles of your tires. This is so that your tires hit the road at an optimal angle for your vehicle’s performance — just as Lincoln intended. When the system is aligned to Lincoln specifications, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. As a result, you get several benefits: your car handles better, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 2016 Lincoln MKX, we’ll perform an alignment check first. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Lincoln recommendations. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.
To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Lincoln MKX alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2016 Lincoln MKX: pulling to the left or right, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your MKX dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
Lincoln MKX wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Correctly aligned wheels can help boost fuel efficiency and increase the lifespan of your tires, meaning you could get more miles out of the same tires or tank of gas. Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Call a nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care to get an estimate for 2016 Lincoln MKX wheel alignment costs today.
