1996 GMC C1500 Wheel Alignment

Why Is GMC C1500 Alignment Important?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your GMC C1500’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. In an alignment 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, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1996 GMC C1500, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. 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.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your GMC C1500

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your GMC C1500 alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on 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 1996 GMC C1500: pulling to the left or right, uneven or rapid tire wear, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. 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. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, meaning you could get more miles out of the same tires or tank of gas. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 1996 GMC C1500 wheel alignment estimate.
