Why Is GMC C2500 Alignment Important?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your GMC C2500'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 system is aligned to the measurements that GMC specifies for your vehicle, 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 there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Bring your 1988 GMC C2500 in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match GMC’s recommended measurements. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

When Should I Get GMC C2500 Wheel Alignment?

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your GMC C2500 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 might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1988 GMC C2500: 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. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your C2500 if your wheel alignment needs attention.
