WK Alignment Question

I have an 07 WK with 48k miles. I bought it with 41k miles. The previous owner had all the recommended maintenance done at Jeep dealerships. I checked the maintenance schedule and don't see anything regarding a 4 wheel alignment. How often should I get a 4 wheel alignment? Thanks for any information.

You dont need a 4 wheel since the rear axle is a solid axle.

Ive never had mine aligned. 4 years and 50k miles. If you have steering pull or uneven tire wear you need an alignment.

There are places that will give you a free alignment check. Here's my sheet from last month:

All alignments are 4 wheel alignments.You can not set front tow without knowing what the rear toe is at(and thrust angle).Does not matter if any rear angles are adjustable or not you still need to know what that rear toe and thrust angle is to set the front toe.


To the OP you should get the alignment checked,and set if needed,at least once a year.If you have a Firestone nearby you can buy a lifetime package which is worth it if you have rough roads and potholes,can be used as much as you want.
