How Does GMC K1500 Alignment Work?

Alignment services involve precise 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 of your tires experience equal pressure. This gives you 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. Bring your 1988 GMC K1500 in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from GMC. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

When Should I Get GMC K1500 Wheel Alignment?

It’s wise to have your GMC K1500 alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1988 GMC K1500: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or squealing tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your K1500 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
