Truck Equipment Installation
Equipment used for front wheel alignment inspection must be accurate. If portable equipment is used, perform all inspection operations on a level floor.
In checking wheel alignment of F-100, F-250 and F-350 (4 x 2) trucks, place a 4-inch spacer block between both frame side rails and I-beams (top right). A 3½-inch spacer block is used on F-100 (4 x 4) trucks between the side rails and front wheel drive axle (bottom right).
1. Drive the vehicle in a straight line to establish the straight-ahead position of the front wheels. Mark the steering column and steering hub with chalk to show the straight ahead position.
Do not adjust the steering wheel spoke position at this time.
If the front wheels are turned at any time during the inspection, align the chalk marks to bring the wheels back to the straight ahead position.
2. Install the wheel alignment equipment on the vehicle. Regardless of equipment used, be sure to follow the installation and inspection instructions provided by the equipment manufacturer.
