ford e450 alignment.....

our new e450 was a bear to drive.... the frontend was way out from the factory...

I went to a very good frontend shop, by passed ford...

the pass. side had 3 degrees more caster and the driver side was only at 1 degree..
it was towed out about 3/16
had to have adjustable slugs put in...

now at 1/8 tow in and over 5 degrees caster.... the steering is alittle stiffer but if you take your eyes of the road for a second you don't wander off the road

I had my rig aligned before I picked it up. Had the dealer fill the fresh water tank and have at it. Between the alignment and the chassis modifications (Jayco's JRide Plus) I was able to take my hands off the wheel doing 65 on a straight away.

Tickled pink about that.

In the beginning when my E450 caster was set at +3.3 and +3.5 there was a "dead, do nothing zone" between left and right accompanied with a lot of wandering. After setting the caster to +5.3 and +5.5 it was a different vehicle all together.
