I-Beam Alignment

Does anyone know a good shop to get a frontend alignment on an IBeam 2WD Ford? Im near Statesville so a 50 mile radius would be good. Thanks

No but I am getting heavy wear on the outside edge of my drivers side tire. About an 1 1/2" wide area.

You have had the toe set??

Whether the price is good or not, seems that that the above mentioned is the only place that you have found. Usually a tire shop that also deals in truck tires can do the I-beam bends. It is just unusual for an I-beam to be bent.

Is it? ok, well I have only ever had one other I-beam ford aligned but it was hit and definitly needed a bend. I guess I will take it in and see. No I have not had the toe adjusted.
