An alignment involves making adjustments to your GMC C2500's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. When your car has 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 the system is aligned to GMC specifications, all of your tires experience equal pressure. Three good things happen as a result: your car handles better, the lifespan of your tires increases, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1996 GMC C2500, 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. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.
It’s wise to have your GMC C2500 alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1996 GMC C2500: pulling to the left or right, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or tires that squeal frequently. You won’t see any warning lights on your C2500 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
Let’s talk numbers: GMC C2500 wheel alignment might be more budget-friendly than you think. In the long run, it could actually help you save 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. Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 1996 GMC C2500 wheel alignment estimate.
