You are welcome to come by any time over the next few days to use mine John. Call me and we can work something out.

pineda22, yes I have checked all those components. It's down to tires or unit bearings. My caster is a little low at +4, but return to center is good and I would rather rule out tires before trying to dial in a little more caster. I know for a fact that my rear tires are not round, and the fronts took quite a bit to balance.

I talked w/ Brycen and I'm going to try and get over there tonight.

Not sure how to give directions easily. My mapping skills suck. And it has been quite awhile. If someone wants to come by and sit down over some maps I would try.

This is the end of Hooker where you turn around and come back out. My old 48 flattie.

Thanks Tumbleweed! I would love to catch up with and pour over some maps and pick your brain. Let me know what works for you, and if you're so inclined I could bring over some cold ones or a bottle of hooch to make it worth your while

Cheers

Thanks again Brycen. Someone else had me covered too.

I'll admit to this to hopefully remind others that you can't be too careful. We started to remove the wheels off of both rigs and I went around and broke all the lug nuts loose. Then mid-stream we decided to just try the fronts. I took a little test drive on the interstate with the rear lug nuts loose

I always try to remember everything I touched before putting the rig back on the road, but I guess I was just too focused on the problem at hand.
