1997 Ford Escort Wheel Alignment

What Can I Expect with Ford Escort Alignment?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Ford Escort’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. During the service, the individual angles of your tires are adjusted so that they come into contact with the road in just the right way — the way Ford intended them to. When your suspension is aligned to Ford’s optimal measurements, all of your tires experience equal pressure. As a result, you get several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the lifespan of your tires increases, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1997 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?

It’s wise to have your Ford Escort alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1997 Ford Escort: pulling to the left or right, uneven or rapid tire wear, 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.

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. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, meaning you could get more miles out of the same tires or tank of gas. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs.
