I bought a old 96 Damon Challenger late last summer. Salesman told me it had newer balljoints, brakes, and newer tires and shocks. Well on the way home the brakes started failing, but did make it the 400 miles home. Turned out to be a power steering belt failure, and AC belt failure. Got that all taken care of and took the coach on a couple trips totaling 2000 miles or so. The coach had much more front end wonder than either one of my other Damon coachs. New shocks and steering damper, still didn't drive right. Heard some noise in the front end, and figured I'd take care of it in the spring. The ball joints were all pretty new so kind of ruled them out. Don't trust anybodies work is all I can say. This is what I found, and hate to think what would have happened had I not looked into what was making the noise. The lord was with me is all I can say.
