Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1996 Pontiac Grand Am

How Does Pontiac Grand Am Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Pontiac Grand Am's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. When your car has an alignment service, calculated changes are made to the angles of your tires. This is so that your tires hit the road at an optimal angle for your vehicle’s performance — just as Pontiac intended. When the system is aligned to Pontiac specifications, all of your tires experience equal pressure. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 1996 Pontiac Grand Am, we’ll perform an alignment check first. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Pontiac’s recommended measurements. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

When to Get Pontiac Grand Am Wheel Alignment

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Pontiac Grand Am 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 Pontiac Grand Am: pulling to the left or right, uneven or rapid tire wear, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Grand Am if your wheel alignment needs attention.
