1985 GMC C1500 Wheel Alignment

How Does GMC C1500 Alignment Work?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your GMC C1500’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. 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 suspension is aligned to GMC’s optimal measurements, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 1985 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.

When Should I Get GMC C1500 Wheel Alignment?

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 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 1985 GMC C1500: pulling to the left or right, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. You won’t see any warning lights on your C1500 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.

How Much Does an Alignment for GMC C1500 Cost?

GMC C1500 wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Correctly aligned wheels can help boost fuel efficiency and increase the lifespan of your tires, meaning you could get more miles out of the same tires or tank of gas. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 1985 GMC C1500 wheel alignment estimate.
