Thanks

Install time should be no more than 1 hour to install the strut itself. They may charge you additional time for road testing and adjustments. You just need to be sure they know what they are doing.

If you are going to get an alignment and have the safe-t-plus put on I am not sure I would go to a dealer. The alignment spec can be very wide and it may already be within the spec. I would take it somewhere that does a lot of work with motor homes and knows how to align them. Finding one that has installed a safe-t-plus before would be a bonus. It can take two or more adjustments to get this get this thing lined up right. It could take a couple of hours if they brought it back to the shop each time.

Install is really a no brainer as long as you have a 1 ⅛ deep socket and a long pipe to loosen an tighten the bolts. Me and my FA took about two hours to install and adjust. If the coach is driving straight and not pulling an alignment most likely not needed.

I paid $446 for the safe t plus, plus $59 for the mounting hardware from PPL back in Feb. At that time it was the cheapest I could find.
Part #'s are; 41-180 (safe t plus) and F-119K2.5 for the hardware.
is the same for the FR3 25DS or 28DS

That is a little higher then we had to pay but worth every penny. Drives so much better. We did not align after as it drives well!
