1988 GMC G1500 Wheel Alignment

What Can I Expect with GMC G1500 Alignment?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your GMC G1500’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. In an alignment 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 G1500, we’ll perform an alignment check first. 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.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your GMC G1500

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your GMC G1500 alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 1988 GMC G1500: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or tires that squeal frequently. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your G1500 if your wheel alignment needs attention.
