Suspension

I have a 1994 Dutchmen Classic 26 foot. Looking to replace all four springs and equalizers because everything is loose and has play. One tire is wearing on the outside (door side rear) the others are good. Would like to do that before checking alignment for that one tire. Near has I can tell the springs are 26" long, your input on the springs size.

If you have one tire wearing there is a good chance you have a bent spindle. Replacing springs and equalizers will not help that. You would need a complete axle if the spindle is bent.

Good Old Classic

Thank you for that, there's no way to really tell without alignment check, they will tell me about how everything that moves, bolts springs, shackles, equalizers has play in it and will need to be replace before they can really check the alignment. I thought about replacing that one axle, but I thought if I could get rid of all the raddling around that's going on would help. Its more of a question... where to start. Thanks.

Don't know if you have a Trailer Wheel and Frame near you, they should have all the parts you need to replace the worn out items and a new axle if you need one.
