1988 Pontiac Safari Wheel Alignment

What Can I Expect with Pontiac Safari Alignment?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Pontiac Safari’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, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. As a result, you get several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the lifespan of your tires increases, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1988 Pontiac Safari, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Pontiac recommendations. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

When to Get Pontiac Safari Wheel Alignment

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Pontiac Safari alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your 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 Pontiac Safari: 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 Safari dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
