The suspension on our Pinnacle has been squeaking quite a bit lately so I decided to do some preventative maintenance and install a MorRyde Wet Bolt Kit.
Upon removal of the right side hardware I found the rear spring did not have a plastic bushing in the front side of the spring.
The other spring bushings were in pretty good shape but the missing one shown no evidence of ever having a bushing.
I finished installing the Wet Bolt Kit with bronze spring bushings on the right side then pulled the brake drums / hubs to inspect the brakes.
I found the Right Rear Brake has a broken Self Adjuster Spring that holds the Self Adjuster Arm in place and keeps the Adjuster Cable tensioned.
I will have to get the Spring kit and repair it at some point in the future.
Our Pinnacle is still under warranty but the spring kit is not very expensive and the closest dealer is approx. 100 miles away, at $4.00 a gallon for diesel it us much cheaper to just do this minor repair myself.
I completed the Wet Bolt Kit install on left side and found no more missing spring bushings.
I removed the brake drums / hubs and inspected the left side, no broken brake hardware found.
Upon removing the left rear brake drum / hub I found some grease on the brake hardware and brake shoes.
I cleaned up the grease and installed a new hub seal.
