1987 Ford Escort Wheel Alignment

Why Is Ford Escort Alignment Important?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Ford Escort’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. 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. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1987 Ford Escort, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Ford recommendations. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

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 one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1987 Ford Escort: pulling to the left or right, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or tires that squeal frequently. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Escort dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.

How Much Does It Cost for Alignment Service on My Ford Escort?

Ford Escort wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Correctly aligned wheels can help boost fuel efficiency and increase the lifespan of your tires, so you can fill up less often, plus get more miles out of your tires. Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 1987 Ford Escort wheel alignment estimate.
