How Does Mercury Cougar Alignment Work?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Mercury Cougar’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. In an alignment service, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by Mercury. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. When your suspension is aligned to Mercury’s optimal measurements, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. As a result, you get several benefits: your ride is smoother, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Bring your 1986 Mercury Cougar in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Mercury. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Mercury Cougar

It’s wise to have your Mercury Cougar alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1986 Mercury Cougar: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or squealing tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Cougar if your wheel alignment needs attention.

How Much Does an Alignment for Mercury Cougar Cost?

On a budget? Mercury Cougar wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, 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 your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 1986 Mercury Cougar wheel alignment estimate.
