I cant help you with a good alignment shop but I can tell you what to look for in a good alignment shop. You have an E450. If you are having wandering issues then in all likelihood your E450 was shipped from the factory with the front end caster set in a range of +3.0 to +4.0 degrees. You want to have that adjusted to be +5.0 to +6.0, in other words add (at least) +2.0 degrees. To do that you will require the installation of adjustable camber/caster sleeves such as Ingalls 594. Here is a link to my experience with an E450 and +caster, circa 2010. E350/E450 Handling Problems are caused by too little + CASTER.

I don't know about Milwaukee, but Accurate Alignment in Appleton worked on mine and did a good job. The had several motorhomes of various sizes, semi's, a dump truck and a school bus in there the day I went. You ultimately should sniff around and find a place like that.

We also had some work done at RV suspension and tires are our specialty in Elk River Mn. Dick over there was excellent and if I ever buy a new rig will bring it to Dick to get work done even though it's 5 hours from home.

I'll second the recommendation for Accurate alignment.

I was having cross wind issues. Now I do not have to white knuckle the wheel in cross winds.

Wally does each one as if it was his own vehicle.

Tell Wally to do yours like he did the last one with +5 ish caster. I think he will remember because I called him as soon as I got home to let him know how great it turned out. I only suspected I was in a cross wind till I saw a flag stretched straight out.

My rig did not have any big rig push problems when I bought it last fall. It was just terrible in cross winds.

Thanks, I did call and will be making my appointment . I did talk to Wally and he remembered you and your
call. I have pretty much the same problem with cross winds. Thanks again and safe travels to you .

I did a test run today from Poynette up Rt 13 to Necedah for kielbasa and kiszka and then over to Rome. I came back on I39. Rt 21 to Necedah was real, real bad, like 50mph. Well I did not realize just how much wind was crossing the road till I went into Madison in my Escape after I came home! Alignment and caster +5 money was well spent on my rig.
