I had a '93 P-30 chassis and a '97 P-30 chassis aligned a couple times each at a local small front end shop and don't remember having to make any distinction on the type of vehicle.

Suggest a truck alignment place and if they are experienced they will know where to set the alignment.

May not be the manual numbers. I had wandering on a W-22 chassis and took it to an experienced heavy duty alignment place. They said the alignment was the manual numbers and that setting would result in wandering. They set the alignment to their numbers and handling was then excellent. After 40,000 miles there was some slight tire wear on the edges due to alignment (?) or inflation pressure (?), but it did not matter as the tires had to be replaced due to 7 years of age.

I run a small FE shop in the OC, CA. and you had better have a hard look at even more of the front end components. Those P-30's are killers of the left bellcrank, draglink, and lower ball joints, in addition to the tie rods. Super Steer makes an indestructable bell crank, and if needed, look into another source for lower ball joints (other than Workhorse) cuz they want a $$fortune$$ for the ball joints. Good Luck.


See ya out there!!

Make sure you get 6 degrees of caster, it will steer better.
