The general rule of thumb is to get truck alignments when you repair or replace brakes, but you may have already neglected your vehicle’s maintenance schedule. Once you stop caring about automobile maintenance, your repair bills down the line can only get more expensive.
The truth is that there’s no such thing as fast, cheap car repairs. It takes skill. If you’re a real truck guy, you already understand how important it is to have a quality suspension system. No one wants to replace an entire suspension system when essential maintenance suffices. Trucks undergo more punishment than sedans and sports cars.
Since trucks are technically most useful as utility vehicles to haul heavy loads, manufacturers have produced trucks to withstand a lot of abuse and need periodic maintenance accordingly.
