How much for a front end alignment

Any ideas. I know it varies with location but I am looking for a ballpark figure

I have a 2006 ford e450 chassis.

I paid $59. Phx AZ. I have been using them for years. Network alignment. Quite a drive for you.

The wild card in doing alignment on this chassis is the slugs they use for caster camber adjustment. If they need to be changed that will add about $150 to the alignment.
I have only done a few alignments that didn't need them replaced to get it right.

The secret to a good alignment on the E350/E450 is to have the caster set to be at least +5.5 degrees. Ford delivers the caster fixed at +3.5 degrees which is OK for city driving. Too little +caster manifests itself as "loose steering" (and wandering) at highway speeds. In order to get the desired +caster the stock concentrics must be replaced with adjustable concentrics (such as Ingalls 59400 concentrics).

Short answer, beware of the low priced "adjust the toe and you are good to go" alignments on these Ford E series cutaways.

I just paid $189 here in central PA at a good truck shop, It needed the pieces to adjust the camber.
