Why Is GMC K1500 Alignment Important?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your GMC K1500’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. In an alignment service, calculated changes are made to the angles of your tires. This is so that your tires hit the road at an optimal angle for your vehicle’s performance — just as GMC intended. When the system is aligned to GMC specifications, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. Three good things happen as a result: 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. When you bring in your 1996 GMC K1500, we’ll perform an alignment check first. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match GMC recommendations. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

When Should I Get GMC K1500 Wheel Alignment?

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 over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 1996 GMC K1500: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, 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.
