My last 3 axle alignment on a F53 chassis was over $700 !
If they change the caster, they are 'supposed' to use brand new U-bolts, increasing the cost.

I've tried resting my elbows on the armrests to reduce the swing and make mini corrections. I must check the steering fluid. Anyone know where the res is?
Thx, rB
What size tires did you install I have been thinking of using Toyo as well.

You do need to reduce the tire pressure it will help.
I am on the same boat as you with a handling issue. As My Pace is the same floor plan and wheel base.


Scroll down the page to "2006 and newer steering upgrade".
have talked to them they say it works but big $$$$$$
about $2700.00 for kit and $3600.00 installed.

I had a similar experience about three years ago. I bought new tires and my Ford chassis started dodging left and right. My old tires were just fine. I had my alignment checked and that was within specs. I weighed the four corners and adjusted air pressure accordingly. This did not help. I then had a trac bar, sway bar, and Safe-T-Steering. These helped some but my MH was still difficult to drive. Then we left Seattle for Tucson. On the trip our coach would dodge left or right. My guess is that the tires were following imperfections on the road surface. The last time it dodged was as we were approaching approaching Tucson. For the last two and a half years it has driven great.
