An alignment involves making adjustments to your Ram 1500's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. When your car has 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 Ram intended. When the system is aligned to Ram specifications, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. As a result, you get several benefits: your ride is smoother, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2011 Ram 1500, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Ram recommendations. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.
To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Ram 1500 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 2011 Ram 1500: pulling to the left or right, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your 1500 if your wheel alignment needs attention.
