Track Bar and Steering Linkage......
My 2015 5500 is going in on Sunday to have the drag-link replaced under warranty. The play is bad enough that I can see it without being close to it. Is anyone else having these problems. I drive slowly and avoid potholes etc...
This same truck had the track bar replaced at 5100kms. But the clunking started at 1700kms. I know I can't be the only one with these front ends falling apart. As I don't do to my trucks what they do at Carli Suspension or any other comparable company...
This truck is heavy but that's why I bought the 5500. It is around the 16500lbs mark but is rated for 19000. I drive it slowly because I don't really have a choice with the 4:88's. The tires on it are M920's that are barely larger than stock. When I bought this truck I was impressed to see that the entire steering linkage was grease able obviously to no avail.
Any input would be helpful. Once this truck is off of warranty I am not going to spend that kind of money replacing parts every six months or sooner.
EMF told me they are working on components for these 4500 and 5500's.
