Ball Joints

When I greased the chassis of my 06 Sightseer (P32 chassis) I noticed that both upper ball joint boots are torn, needing replacement.

Since he shop has to take everything apart I decided might as well replace the lowers as well. After looking at numerous sites I ordered the ball joints from, Ultra RV Products. When I asked the sales person about the brand and origin all he could tell me that they get them from Workhorse. I went ahead and ordered them anyway along with a set of Super Steer springs.

I paid a little over $200.00 for the ball joints, shipping was free and they arrived within two days. To my surprise they were Moog ball joints and made in the USA. I guess that is as good as it is going to get. No idea yet though what the shop will charge me.

I had the ball joints and new springs installed and while the RV was in the shop had them flush the brake fluid and obviously bleed the system.


What a difference in handling now. I am even more impressed with the way my brakes work now. I read so many threads about the Workhorse brakes and the excessive pedal travel that I thought my brakes were normal. They are much better now with a lot less free travel.


Next things on the to do list are tires and an alignment.
