1996 GMC Safari Wheel Alignment

How Does GMC Safari Alignment Work?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your GMC Safari’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. When your car has 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. This gives you several benefits: your car handles better, the lifespan of your tires increases, and your suspension system experiences less strain. When you bring in your 1996 GMC Safari, we’ll perform an alignment check first. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match GMC’s recommended measurements. 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. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 1996 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 squealing tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Safari if your wheel alignment needs attention.
