Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1998 Subaru Forester

Why Is Subaru Forester Alignment Important?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Subaru Forester's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. 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 Subaru intended. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Subaru specifies for your vehicle, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. As a result, you get several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1998 Subaru Forester, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Subaru recommendations. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Subaru Forester

It's a good idea to have your Subaru Forester 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 1998 Subaru Forester: 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 squealing tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Forester dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
