1988 GMC S15 Jimmy Wheel Alignment

How Does GMC S15 Jimmy Alignment Work?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your GMC S15 Jimmy’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. 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 the system is aligned to GMC specifications, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. This gives you several benefits: your ride is smoother, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and your suspension system experiences less strain. When you bring in your 1988 GMC S15 Jimmy, we’ll perform an alignment check first. 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 S15 Jimmy alignment checked about every 6,000 miles.
