Wheel Alignment Service for 1986 GMC Safari

Why Is GMC Safari Alignment Important?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your GMC Safari's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. When your car has 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, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. As a result, you get several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the lifespan of your tires increases, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1986 GMC Safari, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match GMC recommendations. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your GMC Safari

It's a good idea to have your GMC Safari 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 may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1986 GMC Safari: 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 Safari dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
