An alignment involves making adjustments to your Ram 1500's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. During the 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 your suspension is aligned to Ram’s optimal measurements, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. Three good things happen as a result: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2018 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.
It's a good idea to have your Ram 1500 alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. 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 2018 Ram 1500: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, 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 1500 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
Ram 1500 wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, so you can fill up less often, plus get more miles out of your tires. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs. Call a nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care to get an estimate for 2018 Ram 1500 wheel alignment costs today.
