1984 GMC Jimmy Wheel Alignment

What Can I Expect with GMC Jimmy Alignment?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your GMC Jimmy's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. When your car has 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 your system is aligned to the measurements that GMC specifies for your vehicle, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. As a result, you get several benefits: your car handles better, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1984 GMC Jimmy, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from GMC. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

When Should I Get GMC Jimmy Wheel Alignment?

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your GMC Jimmy alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your 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 1984 GMC Jimmy: 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. You won’t see any warning lights on your Jimmy dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
