Why Is GMC Safari Alignment Important?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your GMC Safari’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. 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 the system is aligned to GMC specifications, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Bring your 1988 GMC Safari 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. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

When Should I Get GMC Safari Wheel Alignment?

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 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 1988 GMC Safari: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or squealing tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Safari dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
