An alignment involves making adjustments to your Oldsmobile 98'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 Oldsmobile. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Oldsmobile specifies for your vehicle, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. This gives you several benefits: your car handles better, the lifespan of your tires increases, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. When you bring in your 1988 Oldsmobile 98, we’ll perform an alignment check first. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Oldsmobile’s recommended measurements. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.
To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Oldsmobile 98 alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce 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 Oldsmobile 98: 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. You won’t see any warning lights on your 98 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
Oldsmobile 98 wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs.
