    If you were at 32k on tandems you're going to be very overweight on that remaining axle. I wouldn't move it an inch.

    20k is the max on a single axel. Your gonna be 12k over that.

    Ah, ok now I understand. I think your company is trying to save a few bucks but it won’t work out well for them when they see the overweight ticket. And if you drive around with the front axle chained up, you are pretty much begging for an inspection.

    Just call the local sheriff if you're worried, not a fan of bringing the law into it, but thats a ticking time bomb i wouldnt want to be hauling.

    Were are they having you drive? Are you driving to the nearest repair facility that is capable of repair? Or driving to delivery point. Both are lope holes and allowed to transport for repair. But saying your going 800 miles for off load or repair is a red flag.

    What did you hit? Tire blowing out didn't break your spring hangers. I would have driven with it chained up empty 15 years ago. Not a chance now.

    So what would you do? Fingerprint freight on the side if the road? Expect a mechanic to have a slider box and change it on site?
