Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1990 GMC C1500

How Does GMC C1500 Alignment Work?

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 system is aligned to the measurements that GMC specifies for your vehicle, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. This gives you several benefits: your ride is smoother, the lifespan of your tires increases, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Bring your 1990 GMC C1500 in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from GMC. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

When to Get GMC C1500 Wheel Alignment

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your GMC C1500 alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 1990 GMC C1500: pulling to the left or right, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, 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.
