An alignment involves making adjustments to your GMC K3500's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. During the 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 system is aligned to the measurements that GMC specifies for your vehicle, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. As a result, you get several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the lifespan of your tires increases, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1998 GMC K3500, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from GMC. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.
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 might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1998 GMC K3500: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or squealing 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.
GMC K3500 wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs.
