Front end alignment

Last year I had front and rear Hellwig antisway bars and Roadmaster steering stabilizer installed while on a trip on our Minnie Winnie 22R on a Ford E350 chassis.

Recently I experienced significant pulling to the right. I took it Fincham's in Albuquerque to get an alignment and the stabilizer checked. Toe was off by 1/2", but as I suspected the steering stabilizer was not adjusted properly. They got it all tuned up and now it runs better than ever, like my truck. No issues with cross wind or passing semis.

They will work on any size of motor homes.

By adding a new sleeve they were able to get caster to 4.8 & 5.0 while keeping camber within specs. Both caster and camber are adjusted by rotating the same sleeve. Thus are limits how far you can go in adjustments.

If you started out with about 2.8 and 3.0 you should feel quite a difference. IMO

The adjustment in caster and a proper adjustment in the steering stabilizer gives a whole different feel to driving that rig. The semi passing problem is clearly gone, but I could not find any wind gusts to check out....
