Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1997 GMC C3500

How Does GMC C3500 Alignment Work?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your GMC C3500’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. 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 your suspension is aligned to GMC’s optimal measurements, all of your tires experience equal pressure. This gives you several benefits: your ride is smoother, the lifespan of your tires increases, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1997 GMC C3500, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. 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.

When Should I Get GMC C3500 Wheel Alignment?

It’s wise to have your GMC C3500 alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce 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 1997 GMC C3500: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your C3500 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
