Front axle

The garage that i called to get a front end alignment asked if my front axle is a straight axle or a twin I beam?

If its on a Ford chassies, class c, E 350 or E 450, it's a twin I beam. If its a Ford class a gasser chassies, I believe it a stright axle.

Just looked at your profile. If thats a pic of yours, its going to be a stright axle.

Those are the spec's for the E 350 / E 450 class c cut-a-way with the twin I beam. OP's looks to be a FR3 class a. It's got a stright axle.

I realize that. And, if you read the specs you posted, about the F53/F59 , you will see the front axle listed as a Solid I Beam. That means a single one piece axle, NOT a Twin I Beam as found on the E350/E450.
Don't want to get into a pissing match here, but the FR3 is built on the F53 chassis, and has a one piece axle, NOT a twin I Beam.

So sorry grumpy, never meant to insinuate the FR3 was on anything but an F53 Chassis . The picture of the page I posted just happen to have those various chassis on the same page. I should have cropped the top of the page (F350/F450) out of the picture, my mistake. I concur, the FR3 on the F53 chassis has a "solid I beam" axle or 1 piece axle. I would never want to get into any kind of a match with all the great people here on the forum. This has been a terrific source of information for me in the two years I've had my coach. I always enjoy sharing any little tidbit of information that might help a fellow FR3 owner.

Ah, it's all in my name. Crummy week...snow, then sleet, then freezing rain, then 2 inches or rain, all on the same day. Sittin inside, all warm and cozy, looking outside at the Lexi. Cold n windy and can't get out to work on her.
I apologize for being so...grumpy!!!.
