Driving the Right Way: Wheel Alignment for Ford Vehicles

Tags:
(Posted on Jan 29, 2013 at 04:11PM by Lee Byard)

Sleek lines and effortless curves: your Ford car is a tribute to style. The chrome shimmers; the body shines. Every mile seems somehow better as you drive.

Every mile will soon seem dangerous, however, if your wheels are not aligned.

Understanding Wheel Alignment

It’s all too easy to overlook wheels. They are, after all, unimpressive when compared to the rest of a Ford car. Their necessity, however, can’t be denied--and all drivers must make sure they are properly aligned at all times.

Simply explained, wheel alignment is when all four tires are evenly calibrated. The chassis follows manufacturer specifications and the wheels all spin in the same direction.

The Importance of Alignment

Alignment is not a glamorous process. Drivers often ignore it, assuming that maintenance isn’t needed. Wheels, after all, should remain in tact. They lack the fickleness of brakes or filters, and they don’t demand constant supervision like engines or oil.

The truth, however, is that tires often shift--whether from faulty casters, rolling cambers or other countless causes. A simple burst of friction may undo a car’s alignment, and the result is enough to send any vehicle to the body shop

It may also be enough to cause a collision. Vehicles suffering from improper alignment can experience:

Uneven tire wear
Loose steering
Sudden pulls to the left or right
Loss of traction

This puts both drivers and passengers at risk, and it must be avoided. 

Scheduling an Alignment

All wheels must be carefully calibrated. Knowing when to have this done, however, can prove challenging.

Most Ford models require servicing after 6000 miles of daily driving. Should a collision occur, however, they must be checked immediately. 

Have this process performed in a body shop. It is recommended that drivers also take advantage of full service check-ups at this time to ensure total safety.

Choose a Key West Ford vehicle; maintain the wheels; reap the rewards.
