Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1997 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. In an alignment service, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by GMC. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. When your suspension is aligned to GMC’s optimal measurements, all of your tires experience equal pressure. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, the lifespan of your tires increases, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Bring your 1997 GMC Safari in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match GMC’s recommended measurements. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

When to Get GMC Safari Wheel Alignment

It's a good idea to have your GMC Safari alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected.

Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Safari if your wheel alignment needs attention.
