How Does GMC G1500 Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your GMC G1500'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, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. As a result, you get several benefits: your car handles better, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1987 GMC G1500, 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. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

When to Get GMC G1500 Wheel Alignment

It's a good idea to have your GMC G1500 alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. 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 1987 GMC G1500: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, excessive wear on only one tire, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your G1500 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.

Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires.
