Truck Wanders After ICON 2.5 Install
Hey guys, I recently installed an Icon 2.5 inch levelling kit, adjustable track bar and dual steering stabilizer with 35 inch toyo MTs on my 05 f350 Harley. Everything I read on here said Icon was the best which is why I bought all of their components from Trucktoyz. Well, the truck drives Ok without a trailer on, not great but liveable. However, with my 26 foot travel trailer on it feels like I'm in a wind storm at any highway speeds, it wanders all over and catches every pavement imperfection. A two hour trailer trip was a white knuckle affair. The truck has rear airbags which I aired up to 60 psi and the trailer has equalizers which I shouldn't even really need with a 6100 lbs trailer and a 1 tonne truck. I've had it aligned twice, and we did install the castor shims that came with the kit, however even with the shims the truck only has .25 degrees of castor, (however the SAI was within spec) My alignment tech called ICON to ask for a fix but they have NOT been helpful and keep giving the "I'll get back to you" runaround. What would you guys suggest, what should I look at first? Do you think I would need a dropped pitman arm with only a level kit? What about a kit to move the swing arms back, which should net me some more castor? Can I tighten the steering box? Is there another way to get more castor out of this truck? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Tyler
Oh yeah, and without air in the bags the Icon kits sits about 1 inch nose high, not 'level' which is a bit of a piss off. On the bright side I think the truck looks good with air in the bags, here's a pic
