That's great to hear. I picked up my 351DS as few days ago and due to the terrible roads didn't realize that it pulls hard to the right when you let go of the steering wheel, (I guess this is something you normally do not do). . It looks like I'm following in your footsteps... I was told to take it into the Ford dealer... so we'll see


Keep us posted!!

Wow, We have 351DS, Took it in for front end work. Had a bent axle from the factory. It took a while to get it fixed. FORD could not fix it. Had to take to a place that specialized in big rigs/motorhomes. Everything was eventually fixed under warranty. Document everything, take pictures if necessary. Keep all paperwork filed neatly. Unfortunately I have to agree with SivlerbackMel and the lawyering. There's nothing wrong with talking to a lawyer to find out what your options are, sooner than later. This is not frivolous, it's getting advice, "just in case." We had to get one a couple of years ago with something similar, with no experience with lawyers...long story short...we won. Lots of documentation from the first day. Get names as well. Good Luck. FR did us right though, hopefully it won't come to litigation. Good Luck!

Just returned from the Ford dealership. They aligned the front end, even had me take it out for a test drive with the tech before signing off as complete. I was very pleased! Let's see if I get reimbursed....

Yes the tech spent 2 hrs dialing it in. I'll look on the sheet and let you know what he adjusted. I left it in the MH.

Ok, according to the before & after sheet, everything was off but the Toe & Caster were the worst, chamber was bad but off as well...

Xman, I sent you a private message on where to take you GT for a good alignment check.
