Finally did the Front Wheel Alignment

Took me a while to find a Truck Shop in the Charlotte Area by my storage (Gastonia NC)
Had align with the bushings done and it's night and day
I can let go of the wheel,track straight and not shoot hard right off the road.
Trips over a couple hours were so stressful I'm glad I finally got it done
Tech said my align was set opposite of what it should be
I gave him the numbers I found on this web board and his computer confirmed the settings
We didn't use the Adjustable camber bushings others suggested because he likes using the fixed setting ones
It's all still a little bit of a mystery to me but I know it worked

2 years 9500 miles
It was one of those things
First of all No Ford dealer in the entire Charlotte Meto area would do it,the big fleet truck garage I knew about,tried to rip me off on my old Jamboree so they were out.Every other shop was too far and my work doesn't make scheduling appointments very easy.Before you know it it's time to Camp again.
I just got used to it but every time I'd get home from a trip "I gotta find someone "....
I envy you retired Guys

If you NC boys would slow down in Florence, SC, Blacks tire will take care of you but, that close to the beach, hammer on down.
