F-150 alignment specs

Updated July 20, 2017

Ford added the F-150 to its popular F-series of pickup trucks in 1975. From the late 1970s through the 2000s, the F-series remained one of the best-selling vehicle lines in the United States, with the F-150 often taking the crown as the best selling vehicle. The 2010F-150 came in several two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive trims, as well as a four-wheel-drive SVT Raptor trim. All two-wheel-drive trims shared the same alignment specs, regardless of cab size or bed length. Likewise, all four-wheel-drive trims, except for the Raptor, shared the same alignment specs. The rear alignment was not adjustable on any 2010F-150 because they all came with a fixed rear axle. Additionally, a cam kit is required to adjust the caster and camber on the front end. Aftermarket cam kits are available from auto supply stores.

The 2010 Ford F-150 4X2

The ideal caster settings are +-15.61 degrees Cor the front left wheel and +6.11 degrees Cor the front right wheel; however, each wheel can range by one degree in either direction, with a cross tolerance of 0.75 degrees. The difference in the caster setting is to compensate for roads being unevenly crowned to facilitate drainage. The ideal camber settings are -0-16.667 degrees Cor the front left wheel and -0-15.556 degrees Cor the front right wheel but each wheel can range by 0.75 degrees in either direction, with a cross tolerance of 0.75 degrees. The ideal setting for the toe-in is +0.2 degrees but it can range by 0.2 degrees in either direction.
