Why Is Ford Escort Alignment Important?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Ford Escort’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. 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 your system is aligned to the measurements that Ford specifies for your vehicle, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Bring your 1989 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.

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 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 1989 Ford Escort: pulling to the left or right, uneven or rapid tire wear, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. You won’t see any warning lights on your Escort dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.

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

Let’s talk numbers: Ford Escort wheel alignment might be more budget-friendly than you think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Properly aligned wheels may help increase fuel efficiency and tire lifespan, 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 1989 Ford Escort wheel alignment estimate.
