seeking alignment shop Lowell/Nashua

Looks like my 86 CC/LB DRW is too big for my usual alignment shop.

Any success stories in the Lowell/Nashua area?

My kingpins have slightest play but one front is showing a bit of outside edge wear and I'd like to catch it before I make it worse. I've only put a couple hundred miles on it but am fixing to do, um, more.

Thanks,
- Jeff

Well with no responses here I'll guess you anyone looking in here could use a lead too.

I found my 6.9L CC/LB/DRW was too wide or too long or too heavy for everywhere I called except for one place. Two out of three was common but not enough!

I did not try any Ford dealers as I've had gigantic alignment problems with more than one of them on past vehicles. I'll spare you those horror stories, and they don't really want to see anything beyond 5 years old anyway.

Had a great experience at Lionel's Alignment on C St in Nashua. Dave took the time to listen to my concerns and educate me on the care and feeding of an old Kingpin truck - this is my first without ball joints. I think another shop could have turned my concerns into a few hundred $ worth of work.

No affiliation other than being a satisfied customer.

Cheers,
- Jeff

Ha! Nice area out there - I'm at the beginning of the foothills, you're at the end LOL. Greenfield's surrounding area is now like Pepperell used to be. Of course now Pepperell is like Acton used to be...

I've lived from one end of Rt 2 to the other, give or take a few miles.

Best,
- Jeff
