An alignment involves making adjustments to your GMC C1500's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. In an alignment 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 GMC intended them to. When your system is aligned to the measurements that GMC specifies for your vehicle, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. As a result, you get several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the lifespan of your tires increases, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 1983 GMC C1500, we’ll perform an alignment check first. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from GMC. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.
It's a good idea to have your GMC C1500 alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even a small misalignment can decrease 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 1983 GMC C1500: pulling to the left or right, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your C1500 if your wheel alignment needs attention.
Let’s talk numbers: GMC C1500 wheel alignment might be more budget-friendly 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 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. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 1983 GMC C1500 wheel alignment estimate.
