1988 GMC K3500 Wheel Alignment

How Does GMC K3500 Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your GMC K3500's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. 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, 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 significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Bring your 1988 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 make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

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. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 1988 GMC K3500: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, excessive wear on only one tire, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or squealing tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your K3500 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
