Typically the words "over steer" refer to cornering. Over steer occurs when you go around a corner and the back end slides to the outside of the turn. Under steer is when the front tires lose adhesion and slide thus not allowing the vehicle to turn.

Maybe you could elaborate as to your choice of words "over steer"

Sorry, it's the term I use to describe when you are constantly making small steering corrections. There have been quite a few threads on this issue. It is exhausting to drive any distance as you need to have both hands tightly on the wheel at all times.

If they recommend Koni shocks, say yes.

I just caught the title of this, and had to see what it was about too.

Thinking maybe Entegra's would start getting a big rear wing to keep the rear planted. I was assuming being rear engine with a turbo, it's potentially a trailing throttle oversteer issue like old Porsche 911 (930) turbos!

A hot rod RV with retractable spoiler. That would be cool

You can find enough on this subject to read for a month. It has been going on with the Spartan M/M chassis, in different manufacturers, since at least 2007.

First, if you aren't already aware, they don't pronounce it shar-let, the pronounce it shar-lot, with the emphasis on the second syllable. Takes some getting use to, but they'll look at you funny if you pronounce it wrong.

Second, I found them to be very responsive, they did a great job working with me on my coach issues.

And yes, Koni Shocks.

(When in Rome......) I will be sure to pronounce it properly. Thanks for the advice.

Are the Koni 99B 3234 the correct model for a 2016 Anthem? I can't get a straight answer from Spartan or Entegra.

I think someone on the post posted the correct part number for a 2016. A lot of people tried the Koni's and at the end of the post were posting their results with the new Koni part numbers.

Also call the supplier I linked, they were very helpful and know RV's
