An alignment involves making adjustments to your Volvo 240's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. When your car has an alignment service, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by Volvo. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. When the system is aligned to Volvo specifications, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. As a result, you get several benefits: your car handles better, the lifespan of your tires increases, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1990 Volvo 240, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Volvo. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.
To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Volvo 240 alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1990 Volvo 240: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or squealing tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your 240 if your wheel alignment needs attention.
On a budget? Volvo 240 wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Correctly aligned wheels can help boost fuel efficiency and increase the lifespan of your tires, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 1990 Volvo 240 wheel alignment estimate.
