Why Is GMC C1500 Alignment Important?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your GMC C1500’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 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, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1988 GMC C1500, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match GMC’s recommended measurements. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

When Should I Get GMC C1500 Wheel Alignment?

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your GMC C1500 alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. 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 1988 GMC C1500: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or tires that squeal frequently. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your C1500 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.

How Much Does It Cost for Alignment Service on My GMC C1500?

GMC C1500 wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 1988 GMC C1500 wheel alignment estimate.
