1996 Nissan Altima Wheel Alignment

What Can I Expect with Nissan Altima Alignment?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Nissan Altima’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. When your car has an alignment service, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by Nissan. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. When your suspension is aligned to Nissan’s optimal measurements, 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 your suspension system experiences less strain. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1996 Nissan Altima, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Nissan. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Nissan Altima

It's a good idea to have your Nissan Altima alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 1996 Nissan Altima: pulling to the left or right, 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. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Altima if your wheel alignment needs attention.
