1974 240D Alignment specs

Took her to a shop to get the front end aligned and they can't find specs anywhere. They are not in my service manual. Thanks for any assistance.

If the alignment shop doesn't have the specs, doesn't use a spreader bar and doesn't lock the steering box per the service manual directions, then don't expect a perfect alignment. Might be good enough for government work if that's all you want, but your best bet is likely the dealer. Get it done once and right the first time.
