RR8R Chassis Parts

am in hopes you can tell me the part number and manufacturer of the following.

2005 Beaver 40 PDQ Santiam, .

I had my ring gear and pinion fail and be replaced, after this the coach dog tracks. I took it to a truck alignment place in Twin falls Idaho and received the following report. They said they had no idea where to find parts and told me too look.

Right Front King Pin is loose, (I think I need a King pin and bushing or bushings.)
Drag Link loose at Knuckle (I have know idea what ti needed can I get just the knuckle?)
Right Rear Lower Radius arm is bent (i think the guys who did the ring gear and pinion put a jack or stand under it.)

Please send me in the right direction for these parts.

You should have a copy of the MH's build sheet somewhere. Mine is in the bedroom closet in a clear plastic sheet protector stuck to the wall. On it is your front axle brand and serial number. (for example mine is a Dana model E-1462W Serial # HU00801170, My steerining gear is TRW model TAS 6528A)Any truck parts store (Freightliner, etc) can get the kingpin kit. Kingpins are a "fitted" item, that is, honed to fit. Any good heavy vehicle repair shop can do it. They can get the parts too. Of course do both sides.

Drag link is same, take axle/steering info to shop and they'll order the right part.

Radius arm needs bent back to straight. Have the shop fix it. I'm surprised the alignment shop doesn't do repairs. This is just heavy truck repair work, nothing MH specific although some shops won't take an MH. Call around and find a shop near you.

If the coach was not dog walking before the axle was worked on then maybe they did not reinstall the axle correctly??

Only the ring and pinion cam out.

I have a different shop looking at it now, they work on large trucks. My first place did not have much motorhome experiance, maybe only tire replacement!

Thank you for your assistance, I will keep you posted!

Call Carry Kaiser at Kaiser Brake and Alignment in Eugene, OR. He will help you out and has a shop that fabricates the drag link at about 60% the cost of one from Monaco parts.
