Our steering struggle

We installed the rear track bar. We did an alignment after rear track bar. Just ordered Safe-T- Steer front stabilizer. While looking for our remedies we found one cautionary comment "Don't let them bend the axle to do an alignment".
They did this to our W22 chassis because they said it was so far out. No adjustment left. Does anyone know why not or how to align without bending?

I do not........but I do know that if you don't get them to put in 6deg caster which they may not know to do, that it will never handle correctly.

also 1/4" of toe in, at least that's Brazel's recommendation on the Pseries.

I have a Pseries and you obviously have a Wseries [cause of your solid front axle] and I am not as familiar with this series.

many alignment shops will also incorrectly use the commercial truck alignment specs instead of the RV specs.

call these experts, they know the answer.
