1986 Ford Escort Wheel Alignment

What Can I Expect with Ford Escort Alignment?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Ford Escort's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. When your car has 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 of your tires experience equal pressure. As a result, you get several benefits: your ride is smoother, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Bring your 1986 Ford Escort in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. 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.

When Should I Get Ford Escort Wheel Alignment?

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Ford Escort alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 1986 Ford Escort: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, 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.
