What Can I Expect with GMC R1500 Alignment?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your GMC R1500’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. In 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, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. Three good things happen as a result: you enjoy a smoother ride, the lifespan of your tires increases, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Bring your 1987 GMC R1500 in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match GMC’s recommended measurements. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

When to Get GMC R1500 Wheel Alignment

It's a good idea to have your GMC R1500 alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. 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 1987 GMC R1500: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or squealing tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your R1500 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
