An alignment involves making adjustments to your Porsche 911's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. In 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 Porsche intended. When your suspension is aligned to Porsche’s optimal measurements, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. As a result, you get several benefits: your ride is smoother, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1988 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. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.
It’s wise to have your Porsche 911 alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1988 Porsche 911: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or squealing tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your 911 if your wheel alignment needs attention.
On a budget? Porsche 911 wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Properly aligned wheels may help increase fuel efficiency and tire lifespan, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 1988 Porsche 911 wheel alignment estimate.
