Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1986 Subaru XT

How Does Subaru XT Alignment Work?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Subaru XT’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your 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 Subaru intended. When the system is aligned to Subaru specifications, all of your tires experience equal pressure. This gives you several benefits: your car handles better, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1986 Subaru XT, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Subaru. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

When Should I Get Subaru XT Wheel Alignment?

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Subaru XT alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 1986 Subaru XT: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or squealing tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your XT dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
