I got a 1997 Fleetwood Southwind Ford F-53 Chassis Class A MH.
The drag link and the Tie rod ends are bad and need replaced.
I order from NAPA, Checker, OReilly's , and other parts dealers and always get the wrong part.
Ford says its discontinued and gave me a part number to get. No one can cross ref it.
What I have is a drag link that is 23 1/2 inches long. What I get is one that is 28 5/8inch long. The tie rod I have is straight across from wheel to wheel with a steering stabilizer shock system in the middle. The one I get has a Kink in the rod right where the shock would attach, making it unusable.
I crawled under a 2008 Winnebago MH with a Ford chassis and it has the same set up I have on mine.
Why can I not get parts? Where can I get the right parts? Any one else have this problem? Or do I have a costly piece of junk in my driveway now?
