Why Is GMC C3500 Alignment Important?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your GMC C3500's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. During the 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 the system is aligned to GMC specifications, all of your tires experience equal pressure. This gives you several benefits: your ride is smoother, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. When you bring in your 1988 GMC C3500, we’ll perform an alignment check first. 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.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your GMC C3500

It’s wise to have your GMC C3500 alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 1988 GMC C3500: 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. You won’t see any warning lights on your C3500 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.

How Much Does an Alignment for GMC C3500 Cost?

Let’s talk numbers: GMC C3500 wheel alignment might be more budget-friendly than you think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Properly aligned wheels may help increase fuel efficiency and tire lifespan, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 1988 GMC C3500 wheel alignment estimate.
