Front End Alignment

I have just completed a rebuild of my '70 F100's frontend. I swapped in a set of spindles from a '78. Everything is new: shocks, poly bushings, king pin & bushings etc.

The camber looks to be a few degrees positive. A fellow at one of the local shops set the toe, but it still darts & dives. I have just rebalanced the wheels, and it still vibrates.

I have been told that alignment shops use to bent the I-beams for correction of camber & caster. So far I have been to two Ford dealers, three brake & alignment shops, and no one still has personnel or the equipment to accomplish this task. I find it quite hard to believe that no one wishes to work on this vehicles. Ford trucks have only been the numbe one seller, in the USA/perhaps world for about the last 40 years. I quess that very few of them ever need more than toe adjustment.

Does anyone know of a shop anywhere near the Atlanta area that can/will do a proper alighment on a Twin I beam frontend?
