How Does Subaru XT Alignment Work?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Subaru XT’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. 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 Subaru intended. When your suspension is aligned to Subaru’s optimal measurements, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. As a result, you get several benefits: your ride is smoother, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1987 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.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Subaru XT

It's a good idea to have your Subaru XT alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. 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 1987 Subaru XT: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, 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. You won’t see any warning lights on your XT dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.

How Much Does It Cost for Alignment Service on My Subaru XT?

Subaru XT wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs. Correctly aligned wheels can help boost fuel efficiency and increase the lifespan of your tires, so you can fill up less often, plus get more miles out of your tires. Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 1987 Subaru XT wheel alignment estimate.
