Any change in front axle height will change the angle of the drag link. This in effect makes it shorter or longer. Either the wheels will turn or the steering wheel. There may be no problem.

You know ..you may be right on Rick!

I have this coach leveled on a concrete pad that leans left to right, and nose down as well. With the coach leveled the right side of the front axle hangs down lower than the left side...barely touching in fact.

That would cause the wheel to turn right wouldn't it... Now that would be a nice turn of events..! I keep comparing things to IFS..

I'll have to put a jack under the right side of the front axle, raise it up and see what happens...!

Thanks for the thought/post...

Best regards..Stan
