Front end alignment on e 450

OK gang, I'm picking up our new 3011ds probably Monday.

After reading all the responses on my other thread about
"how does your rig drive" I'm going to have it realigned
and have the adjustable bushing installed. The rig has
212 miles on it now and we'll be driving from RV Wholesalers
in north Ohio to Florida.

Where did you have your rig aligned, town and truck shop?

We will be traveling from north Florida up the east coast to
Nova Scotia so some where along the trip I can have it
done.

Thanks in advanced for your referral.

I had mine aligned at a truck shop in Delaware Ohio. I'll look up the name if you want it. They did a great job.

Don't leave the dealer without having all air pressures check and the air bags set
To at least 60 psi.

yep Mike you and I think alike, bags 65, rear 80, fronts 75, 20 gallons of
h20.

I need to know the size of the hitch receiver, is it 3 inches?

You will be coming up i95. Blacks tire in Florence. They have two locations but only one has a big truck bay. I think on Coit St.

Sorry for the delay. $238.00. Now be advised, the Florence, SC store does not have computer alignment for big trucks. They have several stores in Sc and Nc. Might want to call and get the particulars. I was happy with the Florence store. Very friendly and helpful.

I just had alignment done on my 2012 Ford 450, 2650, at Tampa Spring in Lakeland, FL. Great job, took about 3 hrs as Fords are more difficult. They also installed a new Safe T Plus steering control unit, which I provided. Total cost $287 incl adj bushings. Check their web site for other locations if you will be near Tampa. Big difference in handling and control.
