Can I lift my AS?

Is there any good way to raise my Argosy a little to give it a little more clearance in the back? What's the biggest tire that will fit inside the wheel-well and not scrub?

Height problem

I'll bet the axel is bad. That is how I determined mine was needing replacement. I did the deed and it raised the body about 4 inches, made a smoother ride and gave some peace of mind about spindle failure. I am sure Andy will chime in here with the correct data. Good luck on it.

Yes sounds like a axel job to me too.. I did my Caravel..Piece of Cake job Also helped DragNwagon do his dual axel 73.. It was even easier then the Caravel...His wife Rhonda has a thread on it here on forums...

We have 6 meter Minuet. We replaced our axle with a Henschen that has a 35 deg. down angle and gained about 3-4" in clearance. No problems with the ride, I believe that it improved it. I also ordered 12" brakes vs. 10" it stops on a dime.
