Not what you asked, and maybe you already know this, but the experience on a big RV forum is that you want your Ford Class C set to maximum caster. Which usually means they have to install some alignment shims or something to let it be set to that position. The caster number of 6 degrees sticks in my mind on this. Supposedly it makes a night and day difference.

They are NOT Ford specs, they are much tighter than Ford specs. I am the one that posted them originally. Those specs were hashed out over 4 years with the help of one of our rental accounts that can put as many as 20k on a unit the first year. So we learned very quickly what worked and what didn't work.

Not sure why you would worry...many others on here have aligned to those same exact specs.

Brian, a few posts indicated that FR may cover the alignment cost if done within the first 90 days. I'd like to take mine in to a local Goodyear truck shop to have it done, but it may be a bit outside of the 90d window since it has been in service at the dealer since October. Is there someone specific I should speak to at FR regarding this?

And thanks for your assistance on our 3050... Word from the dealer is we might actually be able to pick it up this week and take our first trip!

Here's the thing. The alignment specs that I post are much tighter than the Ford spec. Ford will typically cover an alignment to their specs...which are really broad.

There are no guaranties that we will cover the alignment to a more stringent spec (which requires the adjustable bushings).

Mr. Clemens, I searched your old posts to find the specs you discuss above and could not find them amongst you most recent 500 posts. Could you point me to the actual post or repost so I can save them for later?

If you search for "E450 Alignment specs" you get the following. I think it is about 11 threads down.
