Front End Alignment Ford E450 Sunseeker 3100

Anyone have suggestions other than the Ford Truck Garage. Any issues or concerns? 12000 miles....Leaving Florida June 6th for trip to Maine.

A Ford dealer would be the last place to take it. They will set it at Ford specs and pronounce it good. Call around to some of the independent alignment shops, tell them what you have and find out if they have the experience to do yours. Some shops may not be able to handel it because ofthe length. Tell them what kind of handling issues you are having.

What kind of handling problems are you having?

A very very slight pull to the right and the steering wheel Ford Logo is not straight but angled to the right. A transfer driver was driving the motor home I don't know if they hit a curb or something. No sign on the tires.

Are you close to any of these? I have found GCR truck and tire centers to be some of the best and most honest people I have ever dealt with. They check the alignment on my Sunseeker every year and don't even charge me if it doesn't need anything.

THis thread has some info on this very thing. I included an alignment spec from a rental dealer that dialed this in over 3-4 years with their local alignment shop.

To get to this spec though it is a little more money since you need to change the bushings.
