A medium duty truck alignment place usually has a pit. A laser pointer is attached to the frame near the center. First, the front axle location is checked to make sure it is perpendicular to the frame rails. A wheel gig with a set of mirrors is attached to the outer wheel rim. A hand held RF monitor reads the alignment specks so the person in the pit can adjust the alignment. The F-53 chassis has a solid front axle with Kingpins, so the caster is adjusted with spring wedges, camber is done with heat and the toe is done with an adjustable center link. As for the rear axle, it is checked for thrust alignment. The rear axle is moved if necessary. The equipment is expensive and a complete alignment takes a hour or more. Expect to pay $200 to $500 depending on how much work is required. Once in a lifetime is usually sufficient. Most Goodyear Commercial Tire Centers include an alignment check with the purchase of 6 or more tires. Ford Commercial dealers have alignment facilities.
