How Does Ford Contour Alignment Work?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Ford Contour’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. In an alignment 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 Ford intended. When your suspension is aligned to Ford’s optimal measurements, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. As a result, you get several benefits: your car handles better, the lifespan of your tires increases, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1998 Ford Contour, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Ford recommendations. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Ford Contour

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Ford Contour alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1998 Ford Contour: pulling to the left or right, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Contour dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.

How Much Does an Alignment for Ford Contour Cost?

On a budget? Ford Contour wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs.

Answers to Ford Contour Alignment Questions

  • Why does my 1998 Ford Contour steering feel different? Pay close attention to changes in your steering. There is no 'alignment light' on your dashboard, so it’s up to you to stay ahead of misalignment. If you notice a change in how your car handles while driving, call on the techs at Firestone Complete Auto Care to check your Contour alignment.
  • What can knock my Ford Contour out of alignment? Potholes and uneven roads can knock your car out of alignment, so stay aware of the road ahead and adjust your speed (or avoid these obstacles whenever it’s safely possible).
  • New tires on your Ford Contour? Keep new tires in excellent condition with a wheel alignment. Help them wear evenly from the start with a wheel alignment at the time of installation.
