98 Navistar 4700 water tank truck
take a look at your front suspension
mine has a 8K axle on a 26 K truck
with several thick leaf springs on drop hangers from the frame
it's a construction type sprayer truck
pretty beefy, rides like a rock
now look at the shackle on the end of your front leaf springs
mine is really really really short
IT SITS AGAINST THE SHACKLE DROP MOUNT
IT CANNOT DO IT'S JOB OF TAKING UP SPRING MOVEMENT ON BUMPS
IT'S ONE OF THE MOST INSANE THINGS I'VE EVER SEEN
(on a bump the leaves LENGTHEN and the shackle allows for the necessary movement)
unless you have a navi/int like my 4700...
my shackle is broken on the driver's side
i'm glad the steering caused me to find this b4
it steered me off the road across oncoming traffic like happened to my friend in his water truck
i've never seen any post on this anywhere ever
how many are on the road?
how can they stay in business?
surely they've addressed this
if not i will from the grave if it kills me
do the school buses have the same design flaw?
who is selling a cheap water truck?
