How Does Ford Escort Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Ford Escort's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. During the 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 Ford intended them to. When the system is aligned to Ford specifications, all of your tires experience equal pressure. As a result, you get several benefits: your car handles better, the lifespan of your tires increases, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1983 Ford Escort, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Ford’s recommended measurements. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Ford Escort

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Ford Escort alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1983 Ford Escort: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Escort dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
