How Does GMC R1500 Suburban Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your GMC R1500 Suburban's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. During the service, the individual angles of your tires are adjusted so that they come into contact with the road in just the right way — the way GMC intended them to. When your suspension is aligned to GMC’s optimal measurements, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. As a result, you get several benefits: your car handles better, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and your suspension system experiences less strain. When you bring in your 1989 GMC R1500 Suburban, we’ll perform an alignment check first. 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.

When to Get GMC R1500 Suburban Wheel Alignment

It's a good idea to have your GMC R1500 Suburban alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. 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 1989 GMC R1500 Suburban: pulling to the left or right, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or tires that squeal frequently. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your R1500 Suburban dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.

How Much Does an Alignment for GMC R1500 Suburban Cost?

On a budget? GMC R1500 Suburban wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 1989 GMC R1500 Suburban wheel alignment estimate.
