An alignment involves making adjustments to your Ford Explorer Sport Trac'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 your system is aligned to the measurements that Ford specifies for your vehicle, all of your tires experience equal pressure. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2009 Ford Explorer Sport Trac, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. 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.
It’s wise to have your Ford Explorer Sport Trac 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 might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 2009 Ford Explorer Sport Trac: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Explorer Sport Trac dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
Ford Explorer Sport Trac wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs. 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 2009 Ford Explorer Sport Trac wheel alignment estimate.
