What Can I Expect with GMC S15 Alignment?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your GMC S15’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. In an alignment 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 system is aligned to the measurements that GMC specifies for your vehicle, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. This gives you several benefits: your ride is smoother, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Bring your 1983 GMC S15 in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. 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.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your GMC S15

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your GMC S15 alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1983 GMC S15: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, 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 S15 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
