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. When your car has 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 your suspension is aligned to GMC’s optimal measurements, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. Three good things happen as a result: your car handles better, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Bring your 1997 GMC K3500 in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from GMC. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

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 one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1997 GMC K3500: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your K3500 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
