Why Is GMC C1500 Suburban Alignment Important?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your GMC C1500 Suburban’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. During the service, calculated changes are made to the angles of your tires. This is so that your tires hit the road at an optimal angle for your vehicle’s performance — just as GMC intended. When the system is aligned to GMC specifications, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. As a result, you get several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 1986 GMC C1500 Suburban, we’ll perform an alignment check first. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from GMC. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your GMC C1500 Suburban

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your GMC C1500 Suburban alignment checked about every 6,000 miles.

Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your C1500 Suburban if your wheel alignment needs attention.
