We just replaced our shocks with brand new Konis, added a rear trac bar, and a safe t plus steering damper. The tech did a wheel alignment and straightened out my wheel. Now we can drive almost single-handedly and she runs like she is on rails. The tech also noticed that one of our callipers was malfunctioning and we ended up doing a full rear and brake job as well. Flushed the brake line, changed the engine oil, he even pulled the rear axles, checked out the crown and pinion gear, replaced the rear end oil.
Got lots of great info from the tech as well as several opinions that we asked him for.
Now, on to tires, and we’ll be going with the Michelin 245/70 R 19.5 XZE tire as the tire dealer said the XRVs will soon be going out of production. He said that although we might get a slightly better price on the XRVs, replacing one may be a bit of a problem in the future should we need to do so.
So RVing is just like sailing! (ie) like standing knee deep in water tearing up $100 bills lol!
But we will be much safer out there from the mechanical perspective and we will take comfort in that! Now to hunt the best price for tires, and we are ready for Adventures. Gladly pay $12K plus rather than spend weeks or months injured.
Cheers and safe travels.
