I want to know what kind of rubber pads do you preferre between OEM or Urathane pads as a replacement for 2007 mack camelback suspension ?

I ve replaced them in decembre 2015 and a year later they seems to have wear down(compressed) fast.


should i rise the pump on the outrigger overnight?

thanks

i have done 4 truck all with oem parts, as long as your pads are seated correctly and you torque everthing down you shound not have a problem. Are your torque arms in good shape and tight?

I did one with poly everything and it was great. The truck drove smooth and was nice and flat in turns. A hell of a lot cheaper than mack too.

I have to replace one leaf from the camel back stack. The one with a "T" on the ends. Anyone know where i can buy just the one leaf without changing the whole stack? Last year i changed the whole stack for this problem. Also where do i get part numbers for Mack MR? I need brake adjusters also.

Call mack they will give you the numbers. Any truck part store should have slack adjusters.

Camelback Mack suspensions get a whole lot of stress. Two years in a row  i have busted leafs. Also when turning, it wears out your axile spring bushings causing travel on the rear tires. There is a lot of weight on a 32 meter  especially when you bounce over bad roads all day. I hit a frost bump today and nearly hit my head on the ceiling..
