Why Is Suzuki Samurai Alignment Important?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Suzuki Samurai's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. When your car has an alignment service, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by Suzuki. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Suzuki specifies for your vehicle, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Bring your 1986 Suzuki Samurai in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Suzuki’s recommended measurements. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

When to Get Suzuki Samurai Wheel Alignment

It’s wise to have your Suzuki Samurai alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1986 Suzuki Samurai: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or tires that squeal frequently. You won’t see any warning lights on your Samurai dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.

Suzuki Samurai 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 1986 Suzuki Samurai wheel alignment estimate.
