Front end alignment/brake checks near me?

I would like to get a front end alignment and brake check somewhere around Plano, TX. I don't want to go camping world. Any suggestions?

Took my previous coach to a place in downtown Denton thatís been around forever - donít remember the name but should be an easy search to find it.

There is a spring and alignment shop just south of Ft Worth on 35W that a lot of people recommend - never used them.

Truckstops that do service usually do alignments - the one in Rockwell on I30 at 276 does them. You can look up their price lists on the Internet.

If you're going to have an alignment performed, get a total alignment. This includes making sure the rear axle is properly aligned with the frame.The tell-tale sign of this is the steering wheel does not sit level when driving a straight road, and it pulls to one side.
I did that 4 years ago, the rear axle was out of alignment by 3/4". Afterwards it steered much easier and I average 1/2 mpg more fuel mileage.

Went to Briscoe and got a front end alignment and brake check. Everything fixed and works perfectly. BUT, you have to watch your rig. Somehow one of my lower cargo doors got bashed in. I was able to repair it myself. A little spookie.

TRUCK SHOP, CALL AROUND? Also call any alignment shop and ask if they know who does RVs? (Mine referred me to one alignment shop in Memphis, but cannot find in my phone right now... did talk w/ the shop owner a while back)
