Thanks for sending the file. We got the camper off the frame and the axle will definately need to be replaced. In John's naval aviation terminology, the wheels were in the up and locked position...... No wonder why the step up into the camper was only about 5 inches.... amazing that we didn't bottom out and drag the frame on the way home. Thanks again

You are welcome. Don't forget the numbers in the spreadsheet also include the 4" lift required to install a trailing arm axle.

When you get the axle off please try to cut through the main beam and get a picture of the shape of the rubber. I'm sure we would all like to see the effects of 37 years.

In my excitement of finally getting my new axle installed, I forgot to get a picture until it was too late.
