Need help with front end-Charlotte

My '80 F150 4x2, auto 5.0, is all over the road when driving. Not from tire balance, but probably parts looseness (?).
Anyone near Charlotte want to take on a sidejob or recommend a decent front end shop? I don't have tools or time right now.
Thanks

You can give my friend Bobby Franklin at MUFFLER MASTERS in Kannapolis a call he does all kinds of work and is reasonable..

I'll second the recommendation for Bobby.......I've known him for a long time,and he makes sure the customers satisfied!! That's one thing Muffler Masters doesn't have...a bad reputation. Tell him that Ashley or myself (John Lynn) sent ya,and he'll take care of you !!

I'd do it for you...if you felt like bringing it to Statesville!!!!
