1986 Porsche 911 Wheel Alignment

How Does Porsche 911 Alignment Work?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Porsche 911’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. In an alignment service, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by Porsche. 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 Porsche specifies for your vehicle, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. Three good things happen as a result: your car handles better, 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 Porsche 911, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Porsche’s recommended measurements. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Porsche 911

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Porsche 911 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 also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 1986 Porsche 911: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or squealing tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your 911 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.

How Much Does an Alignment for Porsche 911 Cost?

Let’s talk numbers: Porsche 911 wheel alignment might be more budget-friendly than you think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs. Correctly aligned wheels can help boost fuel efficiency and increase the lifespan of your tires, 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. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 1986 Porsche 911 wheel alignment estimate.
