looking for part numbers of the (2) ball joints on each end of the steering Tube, anyone know what it is or where i can get them? Steering Tube is the 5' tube that goes from the steering box to the front wheels.

The parts you are asking about are tie rod ends and they will be specific to your chassis make and model rather than the RV make and model.

Hi Raylinda; Have the same part on my 01 Windsor. If the design is the same as on my Roadmaster Chassis, which I think it is on your Peak Chassis, those 2 ends are identified as tie rod ends. Those same joints are used on the drag link that connects both front wheels together for turning. If Alpine did do a good design on that part the tie rod ends should threaded into the tube and held in place with a clamp. If so, once you get the tie rod end disconnected and unscrewed from the tube you can take it to a NAPA store or any shop that deals with heavy duty chassis repair and alinement. On some Monaco coach's the tie rod ends were welded into the tube. There are shops that make up a new tube with the threads in the tube so a new tie rod end can just be screwed into the tube. Hope this answers your question!

SO, you are referring to the DRAG LINK (pttmarn arm off steering box to left side steering knuckle?


Please confirm.

Drag link is fore and aft from steering box to left front spindle.

Tie rod runs from left front to right front wheel, tieing the wheels together.

Raylinda,

I requested that this thread be moved to the Alpine Forum.

Brett will steer you in the right direction, pun intended. Old Scout and EngineerMike, among others are tremendously knowledgeable about Alpines.

Many folks will try to help, but our Alpines are an odd bird. Listen to current and previous Alpine owners. You can also search this (Alpine) forum for “tie rod” and several informative threads will come up.

Nearly every potential issue has been discussed on this forum. It is a great resource for diagnosing and solving problems.
