Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1989 Volvo 740

Why Is Volvo 740 Alignment Important?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Volvo 740's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. During the service, calculated changes are made to the angles of your tires. This is so that your tires hit the road at an optimal angle for your vehicle’s performance — just as Volvo intended. When your suspension is aligned to Volvo’s optimal measurements, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. This gives you several benefits: your ride is smoother, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1989 Volvo 740, 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.

When Should I Get Volvo 740 Wheel Alignment?

It's a good idea to have your Volvo 740 alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. 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 might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1989 Volvo 740: 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 noticeable squealing noises from your 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.

How Much Does It Cost for Alignment Service on My Volvo 740?
