Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2001 GMC Savana 1500

Why Is GMC Savana 1500 Alignment Important?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your GMC Savana 1500's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. During the 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 the system is aligned to GMC specifications, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. Three good things happen as a result: your car handles better, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and your suspension system experiences less strain. When you bring in your 2001 GMC Savana 1500, we’ll perform an alignment check first. 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.
