1986 GMC K1500 Suburban Wheel Alignment

What Can I Expect with GMC K1500 Suburban Alignment?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your GMC K1500 Suburban's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. During the 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 of your tires experience equal pressure. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, the lifespan of your tires increases, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 1986 GMC K1500 Suburban, 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 K1500 Suburban Wheel Alignment

It’s wise to have your GMC K1500 Suburban alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1986 GMC K1500 Suburban: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, uneven or rapid tire wear, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. You won’t see any warning lights on your K1500 Suburban dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.

How Much Does an Alignment for GMC K1500 Suburban Cost?
