One critical thing for you; be sure to get grease in the rear springs. A lot of shops try and when it wont go in they just skip it. These buses are known for braking rear springs if they dont get lubed.

Nice ride!

Mine is a 2012. It has an 18 speed in it but I think they only sell them with automatics now.

The particulate filter and control box for the regen retrofit. It was inoperable with parts missing and bypassed, so I figured I'd just get the rest of it out.
