Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1997 Porsche 911

Why Is Porsche 911 Alignment Important?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Porsche 911's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. When your car has 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 Porsche intended them to. When the system is aligned to Porsche specifications, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, the lifespan of your tires increases, and your suspension system experiences less strain. When you bring in your 1997 Porsche 911, we’ll perform an alignment check first. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Porsche. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

When Should I Get Porsche 911 Wheel Alignment?

It's a good idea to have your Porsche 911 alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1997 Porsche 911: pulling to the left or right, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or noticeable squealing noises from your 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 It Cost for Alignment Service on My Porsche 911?

Porsche 911 wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 1997 Porsche 911 wheel alignment estimate.
