Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1987 Volkswagen Golf

What Can I Expect with Volkswagen Golf Alignment?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Volkswagen Golf's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. In an alignment service, the individual angles of your tires are adjusted so that they come into contact with the road in just the right way — the way Volkswagen intended them to. When the system is aligned to Volkswagen specifications, 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 1987 Volkswagen Golf, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Volkswagen. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

When Should I Get Volkswagen Golf Wheel Alignment?

It's a good idea to have your Volkswagen Golf 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 1987 Volkswagen Golf: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, uneven or rapid tire wear, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Golf dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
