An alignment involves making adjustments to your Ford Escort's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. In 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 four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. As a result, you get several benefits: your car handles better, the lifespan of your tires increases, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1999 Ford Escort, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Ford. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.
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 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 1999 Ford Escort: pulling to the left or right, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or squealing tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Escort dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
On a budget? Ford Escort wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Correctly aligned wheels can help boost fuel efficiency and increase the lifespan of your tires, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of 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 1999 Ford Escort wheel alignment estimate.
