Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1991 Volvo 940

How Does Volvo 940 Alignment Work?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Volvo 940’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. When your car has an alignment 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 of your tires experience equal pressure. As a result, you get several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1991 Volvo 940, 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 also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Volvo 940

It’s wise to have your Volvo 940 alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. 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 also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 1991 Volvo 940: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your 940 if your wheel alignment needs attention.

Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 1991 Volvo 940 wheel alignment estimate.
