Western Mass / Albany Truck Shop

So most of you explained, even though my Jayco is less than 4 years old and has 4000 miles on it to have the alignment rechecked by a truck shop.

So I have been having trouble finding a shop that can help resolve the sway in the steering wheel.

Have had the local shop look at the problem twice and the local dealer once, they tell me it is normal and within specs.

Back to my question, what shop in Western Mass or Albany area could look at this?

If I have to I will drive to Boston but that is a 4 hour drive one way.

Thank you everyone for your help.

Find "Harvard" on this forum. He has written extensively on handling problems with E-450 and 350. The problem is a function of the castor setting which should be over set a little over +5 degrees using Ingalls bushings p/n 59400. I had this done with amazing results. Look him up.

I've had good chassis & alignment service from Hyder Alignment in West Springfield, Mass, but that was years ago now and I don't know if they still have the same skilled techs.

Had mine done here in Rhode Island at Palmer spring for 75.00. They did it in about an hour while I waited. It's about 2 and a half hours from you but if you can't find anyone else it's worth the trip.
