Ford phased out the F-250 in 1999 and replaced it with the new F-250 Super Duty starting that year. The F-250 was available in several two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive trims in 1999.

General Alignment Information

The alignment was not adjustable on the rear end of the 1999 Ford F-250. According to the "Wheel Alignment Specifications" catalogue published by Naas Publishing Company, a service cam kit is required to adjust the caster and camber on the front end. This means that only the toe on the front end is adjustable without a cam kit. Also, the alignment specs for the outgoing 1999 light-duty F-250 should not be mistaken for those of the incoming heavy-duty and Super Duty F-250.

Caster Angle

On the two-wheel-drive trims, the preferred caster setting is +5.9 degrees on the left wheel and +6.4 degrees on the right wheel.

On the four-wheel-drive trims, the preferred caster setting is +4.3 degrees for the left wheel and +5.0 degrees for the right wheel.

Camber

The preferred camber setting is -0.3 degrees and for the two-wheel-drive trims and -0.1 degrees for the four-wheel-drive trims.

Toe-in

The preferred toe-in is +-17.7 degrees Cor the two-wheel-drive trims and +0-16.667 degrees Cor the four-wheel-drive trims.
