What Can I Expect with Ford Escort Alignment?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments 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 the system is aligned to Ford specifications, all of your tires experience equal pressure. As a result, you get several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1988 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. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1988 Ford Escort: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, uneven or rapid tire wear, 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.

How Much Does an Alignment for Ford Escort Cost?

On a budget? Ford Escort wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Properly aligned wheels may help increase fuel efficiency and tire lifespan, meaning you could get more miles out of the same tires or tank of gas. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 1988 Ford Escort wheel alignment estimate.
