    The reason I asked about the stretch and drive line angles is because I purchased a truck once that had been stretched by a shop. I ended up spending quite a bit of money to replace the transmission and driveline and having all the angles corrected because the shop that did the work for the previous owner simply added a piece of driveline in the middle. I didn’t realize your truck was factory wheelbase.

    Yes I’m just a driver, but when I was running older trucks it was up to me to keep them on the road. And I have many years of hauling livestock under my belt so no need to preach to me about time sensitive freight.

    And to answer the other question of what I’d do of the bags were inflated where it was like walking on stilts…….well, I wouldn’t have left the shop and destroyed my transmission. Guess we all handle things differently.

    comprehend? You took it to a Truck stop shop and told em to replace airbag... Why would they go and start checking ride heights and all that.. Maybe you should of told em Ride height was off or have a real shop look at it...

    Uhh.. you too ?? I clearly said I told I the mechanic the tractor air bags are higher than normal.. and he said they were fine..

    In fact I was in the same shop today.. with the same complaints.. and they did not contest liability in fact they tried to offer a lousy credit..

    You have know idea of the stress this has caused..

    Since you all want to play lawyer..

    I even brought this argument to the same person and they had nothing to say.. they said that I was under limited time to pick up a load so they did the quick fix..

    the shop manager was present today.. he did not contest

    however all of you are so intelligent.. the truck is at the dealership..

    In fact over the phone.. me mentioning the height etc.. he was on beat immediately and he knew the issues that could stem from such simple complications.. for example even the dealership shop employees understand the physics involved with semi trucks.. with that said the you people are stressing me out also.. please find another post

    Ever
    Y’all… you are fighting a fight that you are not involved in.. even when the shop accepted LIABILITY.. get a life

    Y’all crack me up.. because I clearly have explained myself & you people don’t understand..

    I realized I was waisting time on here when the dealership explained everything.. also there are several articles online about the importance of height and levels of the truck..


    You people are pointless when it comes to asking for advice.. it has proven itself.. before I mentioned the shop accepting liability you knew everything

    This is a good example.. of if you don’t know just shut up..



    god bless y’all
