Steering component life
Hi Folks, I'm doing my homework before I buy used class A, trying to decide where to draw the line on odometer miles.
On a typical 34 foot class A gasser, normal driving, proper maintenance and lubrication, at what mileage would you expect to see issues with tie rod ends, king pin bushings, etc? Are these components that will get loose first?
Drivetrain, I'm thinking 40k miles or less. In order of preference, 8.1/Allison, 454/whatever, 460/whatever, 2-valve V-10 last due to its complexity and weak spark plug threads.
I can rebuild the older V-8s - because I'm old too, and I used to race.
Mahalo for your input and knowledge.
