Front Axle Alignment

Front Axle Alignment

Our 2000 Monaco 43' Signature Caesar, w/straight front axle, had a slight pull to the right, so I decided to have the alignment checked and set if necessary by a Co. in the San Antonio area named "Alignment Right". I recommend this shop for any and all suspension work your coach may need. Contact Paul @ 210-241-9018.

Camber and toe were in spec, but caster was a little back asswards, leftside caster greater than right, causing the slight pull to the right because of the crown in the road. The right side caster should be set a little greater than the left side. They shimmed it so that the right side is now .8 of a degree greater than the left. Now it steers nuetral. YEAH!!!! Total cost, $150.

We hope this helps?

Had a simular experience with the Bounder when we bought it, pull to the right. Took it to Waco Spring and Alignment. They did an excelent job. Now steering is neutral. I advise everyone that buys a MH used or new have the front alignment checked. A friend of mine didn't have his checked when he bought it, cost him two front tires. Cost him $1000 for 2 tires and still had to have the alignment done for $180.
