Light steering is probably due to not having enough +caster.

I agree with harvard you probaly need a front end alignment. The one thing i noticed on my fk after adjusting the helper springs was a decrease in noise in the back of ghe motorhome. But my springs were so loose i could move them around with my hands. They were also rubbing on a water line.

Are you guys just getting under there and wrenching the front bolts on either side of the front/forward U bar?

I think I found the LP-35 instruction manual here: httphttp://www.carid.com/images/hell...structions.pdf

To adjust the long U-bolts it simply says tighten or loosen them while the wheels are on the ground. Doesn't seem like anything special, since they are already installed.
