Default Q: XP8 alignment specs?

I'm getting my ball joints replaced and will need alignment after. Does anyone have the alignment specs for 99 XP8? Or know who I could contact for them. Thanks, Robert

I was not ever told that the specs are the same as a normal explorer... You have a complete racecraft suspension... not a factory explorer suspension so how would it be the same???

I would say that you need to take it to a good shop that knows what they are doing.

As for the specs, I don't know what they specifically are.

Can anyone else confirm the specs on a RWD and 4WD?

Got a call today from a gentleman with a freshly rebuilt front suspension and some alignment/drivability problems with the Ford specs.

I have the same booklet and the only alignment specs I see are on page 6. They say "Alignment (Saleen Mustang only)" That don't help us XP8 owners. Do you have any other suggestions? Thanks, Robert
