An alignment involves making adjustments to your Ford Expedition's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. During the 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, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. This gives you several benefits: your car handles better, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 2012 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 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. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2012 Ford Expedition: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, 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.
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 a nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care to get an estimate for 2012 Ford Expedition wheel alignment costs today.
