Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1986 Volvo 740

Why Is Volvo 740 Alignment Important?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Volvo 740's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. During the 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 your system is aligned to the measurements that Volvo specifies for your vehicle, all of your tires experience equal pressure. This gives you several benefits: 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. Bring your 1986 Volvo 740 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 Volvo’s recommended measurements. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Volvo 740

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Volvo 740 alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 1986 Volvo 740: pulling to the left or right, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or squealing tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your 740 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
