"Hi Paul is there a chance you have an aftermarket dampening set up that someone retro fitted to your rig. I know that back in the day Rancharo  and a few others like maybe Monroe or Skyjacker made a double shock system for four wheel drive…"

"32 years is lots of wear and tear even with the low mileage. Our idler arm driver side is to be replaced as well as the damper shock, front discs, rear discs, removing back-up gas tank, changing plugs, wires, distributor cap and a carb rebuild. We…"

"Sorry. Glad you checked. My P30 just has this shock on the passenger side as the damper. Didn't know you had another 2 just on the connector! I'm considering replacing my idler arms as part of my steering upgrade. She wanders a bit even…"

"Found out that this is not the part needed. Allready have a brand new #22011982 which is the idle arm shock absorber. The shocks are an aftermarket addition and are not from Safe-T-Plus. They are connected from the main steering rod to the frame.…"

"Thanks guys. Will follow your advice and replace the 2 shocks. The lady at Safe-T-Plus wrote that the model I have is not one of thier's so it's 1985 P-30 chassis parts hunting. Thanks again, Paul."

"Yikes. Just yikes. I have one in my Allegro and the old one was shot. The new Monroe one went in, easy peasy and made the ride so much better. It went from flying a Catalina to a Cessna (okay, maybe a Beech). If yours has 2 shocks that just makes me…"

Safe-T-Plus Steering Control

Good day all, We recently purchased a 1986 Winnebago Chieftain 31 and have removed 2 Safe-T-Plus steering control shocks. They are in bad shape and would like to replace them but they are quite expensive. Any suggestions as to if they should be replaced or can the Winne be driven safely without these 2 shocks. Thanks, Paul.See More
