How Does Mercury Lynx Alignment Work?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Mercury Lynx’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your 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 Mercury intended them to. When the system is aligned to Mercury specifications, all of your tires experience equal pressure. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. When you bring in your 1986 Mercury Lynx, we’ll perform an alignment check first. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Mercury. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

When Should I Get Mercury Lynx Wheel Alignment?

It's a good idea to have your Mercury Lynx alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 1986 Mercury Lynx: pulling to the left or right, excessive wear on only one tire, 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 Lynx if your wheel alignment needs attention.

How Much Does an Alignment for Mercury Lynx Cost?

Mercury Lynx wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs. 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. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 1986 Mercury Lynx wheel alignment estimate.
