I'm surprised with all the info that there is still no definitive data on what the gap should be. The instructions only state to adjust from full open to a 1/4". Most of the Greyhawks seem to have them adjusted to remove the slack and that's it.

I'm still waiting to drive mine after I adjusted it but that won't be till Dec 20.

Just another of many problems with my low quality Greyhawk. The issues never end.

Hi all,


Has anyone else had an issue with the helper springs bolts hitting the water lines? I'm going to get under there and check mine as soon as the weather warms up a bit.


Thanks!

So I finally got a chance to drive the rig after tightening the u bolts. Drove from Perdido Key to Panama City. The ride seemed better than before, less thumping over bumps and a smoother ride. Wind seemed to be less of an issue and was correcting less. Not much of a test but happy with the effort.

Will have a longer drive in Feb.

So how much did you adjust them?

What about the shackles in the front of the tires? Are they supposed to be the same 3/4" to 1"? I just checked mine and none of them are within the standard or the same adjustment. Thanks

Mine weren't either. I adjusted both front and rear to the same gap.

Drove for 4 days, @ 2k miles with the gap adjusted to 2", and I got to say it made a big difference. Semi's still move you around but only about 1/2 as much. No wandering around at all, and the rode itself seems smoother. Now parked for 3 months in AZ for the winter. Gotta say the weather is a lot better than in IL. Friends and relatives are jealous.

Has anyone had anymore input on this issue? Mine are way off also, and I don't want to head to Florida with it as unbalanced as it is. I can see now that having the helper springs properly adjusted would help a lot with the "wandering", by getting some of the weight back on the front end.


I can't find any Hellwig authorized repair stations anywhere near me, and no other shop that I've talked to want to do it while the MH is under warranty.
