Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1990 GMC Safari

Why Is GMC Safari Alignment Important?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your GMC Safari's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. 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. 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. Bring your 1990 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. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

When to Get GMC Safari Wheel Alignment

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your GMC Safari alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease 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 1990 GMC Safari: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Safari dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
