Wheel Alignment Service for 1986 GMC K1500

How Does GMC K1500 Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your GMC K1500's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the 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 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, the lifespan of your tires increases, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 1986 GMC K1500, we’ll perform an alignment check first. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match GMC recommendations. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your GMC K1500

It's a good idea to have your GMC K1500 alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 1986 GMC K1500: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, 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 K1500 if your wheel alignment needs attention.
