Mark,

Craig at Silver Eagle can get you new drive torsions. You can reach Craig at 615/346-9303. If you are looking for a good used one, Franky Goodson at Goodson Bus Sales might have one. He can be reached at 828/428-4102.

Mark, I spoke with Sonnie Gray he knows where 2 are in Texas at a good price he will check for you Mon and also on the board here Dale posted a finding of a guy that would take 600 bucks for the complete rear in CA with the torsion it is listed in the mall section .
Can you tell us whats wrong with yours Jefferson can repair certain parts on the unit.


good luck

Mark, we have a good network here and I bet someone going to FL this winter will help get you one if needed to the east coast.FWIW if the rubber is not out 2 or 3 inches on each end they will not settle back down but very little


good luck
Clifford

CLIFFORD, HOPE YOU ARE RIGHT ,but last year i adjusted that side up, and it settled back down farther than it was when i started. i tried to cheat though, i didn't adjust the bogie, which i found out this spring was way out,1200 lbs,they are both 3100lbs now.

Mark, another thing you can do is reindex the the rears also it is a PITA but Trailways did it for years for more wear.

good luck
