Why Is GMC K3500 Alignment Important?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your GMC K3500's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. In an alignment service, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by GMC. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. When the system is aligned to GMC specifications, all of your tires experience equal pressure. As a result, you get several benefits: your car handles better, the lifespan of your tires increases, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1985 GMC K3500, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match GMC’s recommended measurements. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

When to Get GMC K3500 Wheel Alignment

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 lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed.

Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your K3500 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
