1986 Pontiac Sunbird Wheel Alignment

Why Is Pontiac Sunbird Alignment Important?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Pontiac Sunbird’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. In an alignment service, the individual angles of your tires are adjusted so that they come into contact with the road in just the right way — the way Pontiac intended them to. When your suspension is aligned to Pontiac’s optimal measurements, all of your tires experience equal pressure. As a result, you get several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1986 Pontiac Sunbird, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. 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.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Pontiac Sunbird

It's a good idea to have your Pontiac Sunbird 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 1986 Pontiac Sunbird: 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 tires that squeal frequently. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Sunbird if your wheel alignment needs attention.
