Ride height adjustment in the Vegas area?

Can anyone recommend a place experienciencrf with doing ride height adjustment on Country Coach in the Vegas area? I am at Great West Truck, a big Freightliner place in Kingman who thinks they can do it. I doubt they've ever done Country Coach however. Should they be able to do it properly? Quick response appreciated.

I would think with these attached instructions any competent big rig frame/alignment place should be able to complete a ride adjustment procedure.

If they have the specs, it shouldn't be that difficult. I'm not a truck mechanic and was able to do it. I had Henderson's in Oregon check it when I had the alignment done and was off a 1/4". If your in Oregon, Henderson's would be my recommendation.

i used affordable rv service once for front air valve replacement and overall height adjustment. they did excellent job. while i was watching, they made sure 4 corners had the same height from flat ground, obviously they didn't have the cc document that i am attaching below. you may print it out, bring with you and talk to mike, the owner/tech master; he will make you happy.

Affordable RV Service and Repair

good luck!

(note, i am not associated with them whatsoever. above contact info is from rvservicereviews.com).

edit: just noticed brian has posted the doc.

Thanks to all of you I had it done at Great West Truck in Kingman Arizona. They were great. It was very simple. Years ago I had this and the alignment done at Beaudry RV in Tucson with their very CC experienced chassis guy and he put it about an inch and a half above spec in the front and it rode much better than at spec particularly over rough roads, so I had them do the same thing since it handles so well at that setting. This way the front is slightly higher than the rear if you look at it . Has anyone else done that?

Thanks again,

Rich

When Hederson's did my alignment they recommended an increase in the front ride height. I can't remember how much. Even with new Koni shocks it would bottom out on occation. This fixed that problem.
