How often you should have your vehicle aligned will vary in situation and opinion. Generally, it is a good idea to have the service done once a year or more often if you frequently drive on rough roads. Any time a suspension component is replaced, an alignment must be performed and it is also good practice to have the vehicle aligned when you change tires.
