Wheel Alignment Service for 1996 GMC Jimmy

Why Is GMC Jimmy Alignment Important?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your GMC Jimmy's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. In 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 the system is aligned to GMC specifications, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1996 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. 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

It's a good idea to have your GMC Jimmy alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1996 GMC Jimmy: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, excessive wear on only one tire, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or squealing tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Jimmy if your wheel alignment needs attention.
