Front end alignment $

Just curious what the going rate for a MH front end alignment runs in your neck of the woods. In NW Indiana a Class A front end alignment runs 153.00. High? or low?
I can drive it 30 miles and save $30 but at over $3 a gallon 30 there, 30 back, 8mpg, do the math doesn't save a dime.

Not sure if it's high or low, but that's about what I paid in Titusville, FL when I was going through in February.

For my Class C (E450 chassis), it cost me $190 in Little Rock Ar.
$50 of that price was for the adjustable “shims” or as they called them “Cams” that replaced the factory ones that were not adjustable.
Oh, and $15 of that cost was tax

Front end alignment

I couldn't find anyone in my area that would do the alignment on my 2018 Vegas, so I had to drive 130 miles to Eugene OR to get it done. The price was $335.00

Alignment

Weighing each corner, casters, alignment, inspection.... I can say that I paid much more than $140. I'll get the total to you when I check my records.

I was quoted $175 for alignment only in Mesa AZ for my E450 chassis and added parts if needed. This shop specialized in RV suspension and big trucks. He advised that camber/caster bushings would most likely be needed and total job was $300. Eliminated the wandering (except for wind causes) and much more confident handling. Well worth the $300

Went to GOODYEAR COMMERCIAL service center. They do lots of buses, trucks and RVs. Was 115.00 and worth every cent. No more white knuckle driving here.

About $275 here in Northern Indiana for my E350 Class C. My 2018 has been aligned twice now. Shims have to be replaced with each alignment as they are not reusable.
