Did you fab those height rods and crimp the clamps?

Your assembly procedure is correct....of course once you've gotten coach together sitting on level ground, aired up suspension you'll recheck height...but looks great!

This side all complete. I set the preload on the bearings, installed the Stemco cap, oil, and the new shock that finally came in.

I had a slight groove on the spindle at the seal area so I got Stemco "Guardian HP" Hub seals. They have a sleeve that presses on to make a new wear surface. It takes a special tool to hammer the assembly on which I did not have. So I took the sleeve and heated in the oven @ 250 degrees for 20 min. Slid it on and used a wooden dowel to tap in on the rest of the way.

Then you install the seal assembly and the inner bearing. Install the hub and outer bearing for alignment and tighten the hub bearing retainer nut to press the seal into the hub. I've never done one like this before, but the seal is very robust and I'm sure will work far superior than a standard seal.

Then torque the bearing retainer to 200 lbs/ft to "seat" the bearings' while turning the hub several times.. Loosen it 1/4 turn and torque to 20lbs/ft.

Install D-washer and align pin. The Reyco Granning manual states that if the inner nut needs to be turned to align the hole, loosen the nut , never tighten past the 20 lbs/ft. On mine I did have to turn it to the left a small amount.

Install lock washer and outer nut, torque to 200 lbs/ft and bend over locking tang. Install Stemco hub with new gasket and fill with gear oil.

And for a grand total..
Ball Joints...........$900
Shocks...............$240
Air Bags..............$480
Brake Chambers..$ 90
Air Hoses.............$ 30
Drums.................$260
HCV & Links.........$170
Paint/Misc *est.....$200


Total $2,370.00 for parts to do both sides. I'll still have to get an alignment, so figure $2,600-$2,800 all in.
This doesn't include some special tools here and there, which can be substantial depending on what you already have. I don't count tools in the total as then I'd have to tell the wife about them. lol

Great job! It ain't looked that good when it left Fleetwood....

I've used those same Stemco seals many times.

You've replaced all the key parts & hopefully you'll never need to work on any of that stuff again, lol

btw, the wheel bearing adjustment procedure for all wheel ends is part of The Maintenance Council RP-618, torque is based on spindle threads. I post it here so others can refer to it..

Thanks for the info Mackwrench. Interestingly, it's almost the same as the Reyco Granning manual except for the final inner nut torque. But, your sheet also says "Less Than 2 5/8" nut, and 2 5/8" is the size of my nut. Not sure what to make of that.

Also, add $35 to the total for new Stemco hubs and gaskets..

I don't see brake shoes on your list -- even though you did use new drums.
Did you replace them?

thx Dale

They did look new in your pictures.

I am just always curious as I have been trying to find brake shoe specifics for some that do not squeal. Mine do and I would like to find some that do not.

thx Dale

Ball Joints

Did you toss your old ball joints already? If you still have them would you be able to ship them to me? I'll pay for the ride, my boots are shot and it would convenient to just measure them to size some replacement boots.

....I still have mine. I use them as a training aid, so you can't have them, but I could take any measurements you think you'll need, but it'll be next week
