Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1991 Volvo 240

Why Is Volvo 240 Alignment Important?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Volvo 240’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. In 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, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. This gives you several benefits: your ride is smoother, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 1991 Volvo 240, we’ll perform an alignment check first. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Volvo’s recommended measurements. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

When Should I Get Volvo 240 Wheel Alignment?

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 over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1991 Volvo 240: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. You won’t see any warning lights on your 240 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
