What Can I Expect with GMC C3500 Alignment?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your GMC C3500's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. When your car has an alignment service, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by GMC. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. When the system is aligned to GMC specifications, 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 significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 1983 GMC C3500, we’ll perform an alignment check first. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match GMC recommendations. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your C3500 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
