Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1988 Volvo 740

What Can I Expect with Volvo 740 Alignment?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Volvo 740’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. 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, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. Three good things happen as a result: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 1988 Volvo 740, we’ll perform an alignment check first. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Volvo. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Volvo 740

It's a good idea to have your Volvo 740 alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your 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 1988 Volvo 740: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, excessive wear on only one tire, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or squealing tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your 740 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
