1987 GMC Jimmy Wheel Alignment

How Does GMC Jimmy Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your GMC Jimmy's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. During the service, calculated changes are made to the angles of your tires. This is so that your tires hit the road at an optimal angle for your vehicle’s performance — just as GMC intended. When your suspension is aligned to GMC’s optimal measurements, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. As a result, you get several benefits: your ride is smoother, 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 1987 GMC Jimmy, 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. 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 Jimmy

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 1987 GMC Jimmy: pulling to the left or right, excessive wear on only one tire, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or squealing tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your Jimmy dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
