Best Place in DSM Area for D44 TTB Alignment.

Recently did a front end rebuild on my '94 F150 XLT 4x4. Put Moog K80818 adjustable camber/caster bushings in when did ball joints. Short story most Firestone employees that I have encountered are a bunch of incompetent asses who probably shouldn't touch a vehicle let alone handle a wrench. You can see my original thread here: http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/13...l#post14578219

Thinking about going to Dewey Ford tomorrow. That is unless anyone knows of any solid alignment shops in the DSM area that can actually do a decent job at aligning our Fords with TTB?

twigsV10 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
This is a question I'd like to know as well, no one seems to understand how these front ends work. I gave up on my 94 and did it myself for years, put 100k on the truck and never had a front tire wear unevenly and drove perfect. This isn't the best answer for every one as it takes a good deal of time and knowhow. The TTB isn't a bad front end if setup correctly.

Seek out the shops that only do alignments, they have to know what they are doing or they go out of business. The tire sales shops many times aren't as good. I never had any actual alignment work done in the DM area, so unfortunately not a lot of help. I know a shop in Coralville that can...
