DBLSTEAL, with all of those mods, I'd have to presume that you weighed your coach (loaded & wet) and that your alignment was done the same way, loaded and wet. Your chassis is rated for 16,500. What were your front end weights and where is your tire air pressure?

Yes i have weighed the coach several times, dry and wet.. the front has been on avg 4320 dry and loaded has been 4620 and i run the air bags in front between 65 and 80 lbs to keep the clearance at 1 1/2 to 2 inches as recommended by hendersons.. with the new gv670rv goodyear tires and using goodyears inflation tables based on weight i am running the fronts at 8olbs, i could go to 75, and have done that but same result with steering column. The rear of the coach comes in dry at 8,000 and loaded about 8800,, keep the ride rite air bags around 60lbs to keep the rear level with front if not a little bit higher.
