An alignment involves making adjustments to your Volvo 242's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. During the 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 Volvo intended them to. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Volvo specifies for your vehicle, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. Three good things happen as a result: your car handles better, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1983 Volvo 242, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. 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.
It’s wise to have your Volvo 242 alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1983 Volvo 242: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, uneven or rapid tire wear, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your 242 if your wheel alignment needs attention.
On a budget? Volvo 242 wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. 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.
