With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Ford Expedition’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. When your car has an alignment 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 system is aligned to the measurements that Ford specifies for your vehicle, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, 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 2002 Ford Expedition, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Ford. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.
To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Ford Expedition 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 2002 Ford Expedition: pulling to the left or right, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or squealing tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Expedition dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
