I think I have a W22 under my 2002 Southwind 32V?? A while back I was under the coach and saw that one of the rear spring wrap clip bolts?? was digging into the frame rail on compression. Does anyone know anything about a problem like this?

If you are talking about the "wrap" that keeps the spring pack in alignment, there should be from two to four per side and they are usually not bolted but rather "folded" together as there is little load on them.

If you are talking about the end of the spring pack "main leaf" (either end) that wraps around the bushing that in turn bolts to either the frame or "shackle", perhaps you have a cracked leaf or a fatigued spring pack.

If something attached to your leaf springs is "digging" into your frame rail, you need to look at your springs very carefully, your tire pressure, your loading of the coach re: that side or both sides etc. Something is amiss here and pictures would help a lot.

I will take pictures and post them here. This is definitely the clip that keeps the leaves in alignment but it does have a bolt and is not folded. I have seen the folded type. I'll try for the pictures tonight.

I would do something about the clip before it get to be a bigger problem.
