1991 GMC R3500 Wheel Alignment

Why Is GMC R3500 Alignment Important?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your GMC R3500’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. 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 system is aligned to the measurements that GMC specifies for your vehicle, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. Three good things happen as a result: your car handles better, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1991 GMC R3500, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match GMC’s recommended measurements. 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 R3500

It’s wise to have your GMC R3500 alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1991 GMC R3500: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your R3500 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
