1996 Oldsmobile 98 Wheel Alignment

Why Is Oldsmobile 98 Alignment Important?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Oldsmobile 98’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. When your car has 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 suspension is aligned to Oldsmobile’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, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1996 Oldsmobile 98, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Oldsmobile’s recommended measurements. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

When to Get Oldsmobile 98 Wheel Alignment

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 may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1996 Oldsmobile 98: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, 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.
