Wheel Alignment Service for 1984 Ford Escort

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. In an alignment service, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by Ford. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. When the system is aligned to Ford specifications, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, the lifespan of your tires increases, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Bring your 1984 Ford Escort in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Ford recommendations. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Ford Escort

It's a good idea to have your Ford Escort alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 1984 Ford Escort: pulling to the left or right, uneven or rapid tire wear, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or squealing tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your Escort dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
