1988 GMC Jimmy Wheel Alignment

Why Is GMC Jimmy Alignment Important?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your GMC Jimmy’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 your suspension is aligned to GMC’s optimal measurements, all of your tires experience equal pressure. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and your suspension system experiences less strain. When you bring in your 1988 GMC Jimmy, we’ll perform an alignment check first. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from GMC. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

When to 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 1988 GMC Jimmy: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Jimmy if your wheel alignment needs attention.

How Much Does an Alignment for GMC Jimmy Cost?

GMC Jimmy wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Properly aligned wheels may help increase fuel efficiency and tire lifespan, meaning you could get more miles out of the same tires or tank of gas. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 1988 GMC Jimmy wheel alignment estimate.
