who designed the car
ford or the tire guys
ford picked tires capible of certain specs
and what pressure does teck use to set alignment
what a tard
cars are built with UNDERSTEER in mind
next time you buy a van
some are not designed to be ambulances ETC
why is that
they are all f 450
what is the diffrence
also why do schoolbusses
police cars, ambulances
use RECOMMENDED SPECS as per FORD
