They took mine off to do the alignment and then reset it.

@Photomaster, did they install some caster shims when they did your alignment? Seems like it helped quite a bit in keeping it tracking straight. Had 2 degree shim installed on the left, and 2.5 degree in the right. About $40 for the shims. First time I took it in, they didn't do anything with the caster. This time, I insisted they get the caster above 6 degrees to help it track straight and not wander.

No they did not. My total toe in was so far off it was ridiculous. Blew through my first set of front Goodyears. Had them replaced with Michelin motor home tires. I installed Koni's front and back. Coach drives, steers and rides so very nice now.

Picked up FR3 Yesterday with new safety plus installed. amazing difference. i can drive with one hand now. heck, I can drive with just three fingers on the wheel. should be standard for the coach

a little pull to the right though. just need to make a slight adjustment

I'm not sure if they have to take it off or not.
