Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is wheel alignment?
A wheel alignment is an adjustment to the angles of the wheels, making sure that they are square to the ground and parallel to one another. This ensures optimal vehicle handling, tire wear, and fuel efficiency.
2. How often should I get a wheel alignment?
It is generally recommended to get a wheel alignment every 10,000 miles or as advised by your vehicle’s manufacturer. However, certain factors such as driving conditions and road hazards may require more frequent alignments.
3. What are the signs that my vehicle needs a wheel alignment?
Some common signs that your vehicle may need a wheel alignment include uneven or rapid tire wear, pulling to one side while driving, a vibrating steering wheel, or a crooked steering wheel when driving straight.
4. How long does a wheel alignment take?
The length of time a wheel alignment takes can vary depending on the specific vehicle and the type of alignment needed. It typically takes around 1-2 hours to complete.
5. Can I drive my vehicle without getting a wheel alignment?
While it is possible to drive your vehicle without immediate alignment, it is not recommended. Misaligned wheels can lead to uneven tire wear, reduced fuel efficiency, and compromised vehicle handling and safety.
6. Can I perform a wheel alignment myself?
Wheel alignment is a complex process that requires specialized equipment and expertise. It is best to leave it to trained professionals at a Ford dealership to ensure accurate and safe alignment.
