Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1988 Porsche 944

How Does Porsche 944 Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Porsche 944's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. When your car has 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 suspension is aligned to Porsche’s optimal measurements, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, the lifespan of your tires increases, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1988 Porsche 944, 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.

When Should I Get Porsche 944 Wheel Alignment?

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Porsche 944 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 may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1988 Porsche 944: pulling to the left or right, excessive wear on only one tire, 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 944 if your wheel alignment needs attention.
