Suspension help

As a newbie 2000 Diplomat 40 PBD owner I need to have some general maintenance done. I have little in the way of maintenance records from the previous owner so I need things like wheel bearings checked and packed, shocks changed, ride height checked, a good general suspension inspection. My question is where is the best place to get this type of work done? I want good work at a fair price. The local Camping World does not impress me. Would a full service truck tire shop be best? Any general suggestions would be of great help.


Thanks


Dan B

I try a truck chassis service shop. Get the ride height specs from Roadmaster (your chassis builder) first, though. Many shops are not familiar with Roadmaster chassis or have the specs ready-to-hand.

You can get a list of Roadmaster Chassis recommended service centers here:
