front suspension/steering diagram

I am trying to find a diagram of the steering components and suspension components in the front end of the 1987 345 classic. If there is a parts list available that would be incredibly helpful.

thanks in advance!

I just saved section 3 from my P30 Chassis Service Manual (Steering, Suspension, Wheels, and Tires) as a separate 4mb .pdf file, but for some reason I cannot attach it here. It has some diagrams. If you email me at I will reply with the file attached.

I have read posts from guys who have improved sloppy steering with an adjustment at the steering box. We had a big improvement when we had the "rag joint", aka steering coupler, between the column and steering box, replaced.

Make sure to check your ball joints, especially the lower ones. Not only is it dangerous to drive these heavy rigs with worn out ball joints, but it will also give you the sensation of a sloppy front end and steering.
