Got an Alignment, Big handling difference!
 
The trips up to Morro Bay and down to Coronado San Diego were a workout. There was a lot of correcting back and forth and a pull to the right. It was noted during my PDI about the pull. The dealer got the approval and I got the alignment today. Huge difference, one handed steering, straight and no pull or need for constant correction. Not sure about the spec's they used. I believe they may be Ford's and are definitely not the ones posted on the forum.
Left camber 0
Right camber 0
Left Caster 1.50+
Right Caster 1.75+
Toe 1/16" in

I know many have set there's differently, but this seems fine for now. They did have to install the caster/camber eccentric kits. Glad they got prior approval.

Took me 3 times to the front alignment shop and a rear trac bar to get mine to handle good but it does handle good now

Sagecoach,

Where did you get the alignment done?

I'm getting my coach aligned on Saturday. My coach doesn't pull...just wanders.

Increasing the castor improved the wandering on mine.

It use to be said wait until you have 2000 to 2500 miles before alignment that it seemed to stay aligned better and also had settled in at that mileage that is what I did whether it did or not I don't know

vwexpert 10-07-2015 01:47 PM

I'm at 2800 miles.

Sagecoachdriver 10-07-2015 05:19 PM

I am at 3,000, got it wth 2,350

Boso 10-07-2015 06:09 PM

Yea I think I was somewhere in that range too

Does the RV dealership do the alignment or a Ford/Chevy dealer and is it covered by the warranty?
