RV Wheel Alignment Dually, 4WD & Fleet Alignment Assembly & Instructions
Components for 90073 Off Road, 4×4
Components 90080 Fleet, Bus, Semi & RV Alignment
**The pins will work with both steel and aluminum, but sometimes magnets are easier on your steel wheels. If you have any doubts on the right wheel application and size, email us first at firstname.lastname@example.org with a picture of your wheel and tire. We will ensure the right application for your needs.
Added Extension Kit
Need extra length between your rim and QuickTrick? Utilize the enclosed extension kit as pictured below. Your spacers may be different lengths based on your QuickTrick kit design. Make sure to use the spacers to keep your lengths consistent.

Instructions Assumes no worn parts but just not aligned to the optimum range to cure wandering and/or check measurements. Minimum Items Needed: Quicktrick 90073/90080 Fleet/RV/Dually set up
- Perform initial Alignment (Follow Quick Trick Instructions).
- Confirm no runout/wheel bent issues
- Check for appropriate air pressure
- Center tires straight ahead and mark steering wheel center to maintain visibility from outside the vehicle
- Affix QuickTrick frames to either front sides of the vehicle using magnets or pins.
With and without toe plates, Caster is a lot easier than most people think.
- Center your steering wheel (use a small piece of tape for reference as you measure)
- Place the QuickTrick frame on the wheel you are measuring
- Use the gauge to determine the vertical is at 90 degrees (Make sure it is on the mode for degrees and not inches)
- Make sure your tires are straight and center the steering wheel
- Turn the wheel until the tire you are measuring is at 20 degrees (You can use a protractor with homemade plates or turn plates)
- Place the gauge on the gauge bracket horizontally and zero out
- Turn the steering wheel back to the center.. then 20 degrees in the opposite direction
- Read the gauge.. Multiply the reading by 1.5. This is your caster measurement with the gauge arrow indicating up/down arrow for negative or positive
- Level the camber gauge. This is accomplished by placing the gauge in front of the tire and wheel you are checking. Turn the gauge on and the first reading you will see is the level of the surface you are working on. Example: If the reading on the gauge is 1.0 followed by the ^ arrow, this indicates the surface you’re working on is 1.0 degrees positive, the opposite would show on the gauge as 1.0 v or negative. Simply hit the zero button and the gauge will recalibrate and show on the screen as 0.00 and will hold this recalibrated number until the unit is turned off.
- Adjust for wheel height and size and attach the QuickTrick verticals to either side. Make sure you are working on a totally flat surface against the wheel and the vertical is at 90 degrees prior to placing your gauge on the horizontal gauge bracket.
- Checking Camber. Place the gauge on the gauge bracket and record your camber. Example: 0.7 v indicates this wheel has less than 1 degree of negative camber. The only thing you really need to remember when using the gauge is ^ is positive, v is negative. In most cases you do not have to reset the gauge to level for each wheel but I would recommend until you have become totally familiar with the system to readjust for each wheel. As a side note, you can also place the gauge directly against the stick to check camber, the number that shows on the gauge will be plus or minus 90 degrees or vertical.
- Repeat on opposite side
- Attach toe bars to QuickTrick verticals if needed. (Some QuickTrick systems have toe bars attached from the start)
- Extend the tapes one in front of the tire and one behind the tire. We have found working from right to left is easiest for us. Slide the clip of the tape measure into the slots of the left front and rear, return the right front and slide the extended tapes into the slots front and rear.
- Gently pull the tapes at the same time making sure the opposite side is seated against the tire.
- Read the tapes carefully. Typically you will have readings something like this: Front measurement 75 ¼ – Rear measurement 75 1⁄8. This indicates that you have 1⁄8of an inch of toe out. Easy way to remember this is if the front number is higher, you have toe out. If the rear number is higher then of course you have toe in.
**If toe adjustments are needed, we recommend you string the vehicle to determine which or if both sides need adjustment.
