Trailing Arms

Well had new trailing arms installed on Monday 18th. old arms were not cracked or broken,,,,but better safe than sorry. We feel with just the new trailing arms replaced, the m/h handled better, it felt quite a bit more stable so I guess we are happy with the purchase. maybe someday the ride enhancement will be our next big purchase..just thought I would tell someone about this......

Tell this dumb old country boy what "trailing arms" are.

I had both mine changed after they both busted. It is nice to have it behind you.

I had mine done back in May, both were cracked when inspected after removal. The shop that did the job initially inspected thr old ones incorrectly, glad I bit the bullet when I did. PS my ride is better after returning my ride height to the Monaco recommendations instead of the 9" Scott engineering recommended.

I have been mentally debating the shock change and I am happy to hear that the Koni's worked out for you. Shocks and ride adjustment are the next items on my to do list after we return from our next trip. I suppose the Norcold recall had best be included in that also. My tires have about 40K on them and seem to be okay, but how many miles can I hope for on this chassis?
