Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2008 Ford Expedition

Why Is Ford Expedition Alignment Important?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Ford Expedition’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, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. 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 2008 Ford Expedition, we’ll perform an alignment check first. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Ford’s recommended measurements. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

When Should I Get Ford Expedition Wheel Alignment?

It’s wise to have your Ford Expedition alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease 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 2008 Ford Expedition: pulling to the left or right, excessive wear on only one tire, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or squealing tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Expedition if your wheel alignment needs attention.

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

On a budget? Ford Expedition wheel alignment might be more affordable than you 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 2008 Ford Expedition wheel alignment estimate.

Ford Expedition Alignment Questions

  • Why does my 2008 Ford Expedition steering feel different? Pay close attention to changes in your steering. There is no “alignment light” on your dashboard, so it’s up to you to stay ahead of misalignment. If you notice a change in how your car handles while driving, call on the techs at Firestone Complete Auto Care to check your Expedition alignment.
  • How can I avoid knocking my Ford Expedition out of alignment? Potholes and uneven roads can knock your car out of alignment, so stay aware of the road ahead and adjust your speed (or avoid these obstacles whenever it’s safely possible).
  • I just bought new Ford Expedition tires. Do I need an alignment? Did you just have new tires installed on your Expedition? A wheel alignment can help them wear more evenly from the get-go.
