The factory adjustment is done using interchangeable plates, each with a fixed offset. To readjust it in the field requires that a set of 4 adjustable alignment eccentrics be substituted for the fixed plates.
Yes, the eccentrics cost extra but where you buy them determines how much extra. I got mine from a local parts store at about half of what you were quoted. I pulled the pivot bolts and installed them myself before taking it into the Ford dealer for an alignment.
