Wheel Alignment Service for 1986 GMC K3500

How Does GMC K3500 Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your GMC K3500'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 your suspension is aligned to GMC’s optimal measurements, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. Three good things happen as a result: your car handles better, the lifespan of your tires increases, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Bring your 1986 GMC K3500 in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match GMC recommendations. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

When Should I Get GMC K3500 Wheel Alignment?

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your GMC K3500 alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce 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 1986 GMC K3500: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, 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 K3500 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
