1994 Affinity Neway Suspension Issue

Came home from a weekend trip to a piece of seal/boot laying on the RV pad. Further investigation revealed it is from some sort of torque arm that runs fore to aft and attaches to the top drivers side of the axle. I am having difficulty finding any parts diagram that shows this specific piece. Anybody have an idea what it is actually called and where to source the part. I believe this is the Neway ARD 125-6 rear suspension. Thanks.

Travis

My Gillig Parts Manual has the below parts schematic for the Neway 125-6.

I cannot identify your part in question based upon the pictures.

I did have the rear bushings replaced on my rig about 4 years ago. Cost was about $1,000.

The mechanic at OMC in Eugene, Or. said it was not an emergency repair so I drove it that summer then had the repair done.

I also found a torn part lying in my driveway and made inquiries from there.

Hope the above pictures help. You will need to enlarge them.

Deandec,

That was exactly the drawing I was looking for! The parts in question that seem to be failing are the torque rod bushing (where it connects to the axle.

Which bushings did you have done? Thanks!

The rear torque arms bushings were the failure that occurred.

The shop description is "rebush rear drive axle.

Rebush rear beams and pivot points."

The shop recommended we do the whole rear end while they were at it and because the rig was then 22 years old.

We agreed.

Frankly, I cannot tell the difference of before and after the repair, but I am not very knowledgeable about this stuff.

Well I would feel as though it is money well spent since they were going to be in there anyhow.
