    Holy Cow!!!!????

    A broken Pierce?

    Say it isn't so!!!

    I thought only everyone elses apparatus broke, not the Piece.

    Sorry, I couldn't resist and have ZERO experience with the problem you describe.

    Try the <a href="http://www.naevt.org/BBS_frames.htm" target="_blank">http://www.naevt.org/BBS_frames.htm</a> though, might find something there.
    It's only my opinion. I do not speak for any group or organization I belong to or associate with or people I know - especially my employer. If you like it, we can share it, you don't have to give me credit. If you don't, we are allowed to disagree too (but be ready to be challenged, you may be on to something I'm not). That's what makes America great!

    No experience w/ Hendrickson here, however since I was up late w/ nothing better to do (Can't sleep till I quit coughing <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> ), I did some 'net searching.

    I found the following on Hendricksons web site ( <a href="http://www.hendrickson-intl.com" target="_blank">http://www.hendrickson-intl.com</a> ).

    Under Technical Assistance:

    Hendrickson Truck Suspension Systems<br />800 South Frontage Road<br />Woodridge, IL 60517-4904<br />Telephone: 630-910-2800<br />Facsimile: 630-910-2899

    <br />Other than that I wasn't able to come up with much.

    Also - I did a search on the NAEVT BBS and didn't turn up anything, but while browsing some other questions I noticed there were some pretty good (thechnical, well thought out and well explained) responses to questions. I would highly reccomend you post your problem there (in great detail).

    <br />Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
