An alignment involves making adjustments to your Ford Expedition's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the 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 the system is aligned to Ford specifications, all of your tires experience equal pressure. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the lifespan of your tires increases, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 1997 Ford Expedition, we’ll perform an alignment check first. 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.
It’s wise to have your Ford Expedition alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly 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 also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 1997 Ford Expedition: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your Expedition dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
Ford Expedition wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. In the long run, it could actually help you save 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. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 1997 Ford Expedition wheel alignment estimate.
