Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1983 GMC K3500

Why Is GMC K3500 Alignment Important?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your GMC K3500’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. When your car has 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 your system is aligned to the measurements that GMC specifies for your vehicle, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. 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. When you bring in your 1983 GMC K3500, we’ll perform an alignment check first. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match GMC’s recommended measurements. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your GMC K3500

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your GMC K3500 alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your 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 1983 GMC K3500: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your K3500 if your wheel alignment needs attention.
