How Does Mercury Cougar Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Mercury Cougar's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. During the 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 Mercury intended them to. When your suspension is aligned to Mercury’s optimal measurements, all of your tires experience equal pressure. As a result, you get several benefits: your car handles better, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and your suspension system experiences less strain. When you bring in your 1988 Mercury Cougar, we’ll perform an alignment check first. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Mercury’s recommended measurements. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

When Should I Get Mercury Cougar Wheel Alignment?

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Mercury Cougar alignment checked about 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 1988 Mercury Cougar: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, 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.
