Spartan factory inspection done Monday found these issues.
Ride height low in rear.
Tie rod boots bad.
Front sway bar links and bushings need replacing.
Drive axle slack adjuster not working.
Some oil in wet tank.
The service writer and tech were very impressed that a 23 year old rig had fewer issues that most seen.
The slack adjuster I will try to handle myself. Oil in wet tank probably means compressor needs some work.
All in all a very worthwhile experience and Spartan is a first class operation. Nice to have the factory put eyes on all the systems and get a good report.

Paul,
Good for you, on the good service report...
On the slack adjuster; Is it the street side? If its the same as mine, you will have to pull the wheels... I found this out when had new brakes put on...

Great to get a good report. What did the inspection run?

The actual inspection charge is $135.00. But then they add on some extra fees. Maybe if you just have the inspection done and don't have any work done the other fees aren't added.???
