Cuervo1 said:Thanks for the advice. I had all new tires installed and an alignment prior to trip, so caster was fine. I was however, running max tire pressure ,(85 psi). I will try reducing a little. Still think I will try the Roadmaster stabilizer at least on rear. Will advise if it makes any improvement. It will be awhile though,because I'm wearing a knee immobilizer due to knee surgery to repair a total quadriceps tear and tendon rupture which happend on that windy trip.I
I am enjoying forum very much while I am laid up.
Cuervo1 said:Thanks again for all of your expertise. I checked my alignment printout,caster set at Left+6.3 and Right+5.7 Which is the same as it was before alignment. The only adjustment that he changed was toe, which was way off. I'm now looking at Hellwig, anti sway bars. They are cheaper than Roadmaster. RVRAC posted he has them and made a big difference
You seem to be the most educated person around on the subject of caster.Should this be corrected, or is it a condition I should live with? I don't think the place where I had the alignment done will re do it. I had a bit of a pissing contest with them when they tried charge me $200. after being quoted $ 125. when I made the appointment. We settled on $ 175.
Can this be corrected with the Ingalls 5400? Would it be possible to reduce the Left setting a little? From what I gather, the Right is good at 5.7, if I understand correctly.My alignment printout does not indicate Cross Caster,it does indicate Steer Ahead,which is +0.05 and Total Toe which is -0.02.
