Bell Crank

If you replace the bell crank on a chev. p30 do you then need a wheel alignment?

If you want to prevent tire wear and improve handling, I'd say yes.

I replaced the bell crank on my last Freightliner chassis without re-aligning the front end. Made no difference. I think that a lot would depend on weather or not there is a lot of wear in the rest of the front end.

Previous MH was on a P30 chassis. Bellcranks and air bags were bad when I bought it. Had them replaced and the shop recommended alignment. They did not do alignments so were not just trying to upsell me. I subsequently did have the alignment done.

BTW - suggested is to replace with Henderson's bellcranks, else in ~15k miles you will likely be replacing OE bushing ones again.

Deffinately do the Henderson Super Cranks. The stock o.e.m. type will just wear out right away.
MN is home for now.
