Our bus is in the shop for one last oil change and inspection before we take-off, and the mechanic noted play in the carrier bearing, and a leak in the rear suspension.
They said neither one is an emergency situation, that I can drive it for now, but should think about replacing before or during my next service. They are looking up ETA on parts, just incase I want to pull the trigger now, but she did mention parts are hard to get right now.
My question: are either of these an easy DIY job? Carrier bearing looks easy enough to find, and fairly inexpensive - just not sure I have the mechanical chops to pull it off without many hours of youtube education ;)
For the rear suspension - the 2 air bags in back look almost brand new and I haven't had a chance to get under there with the soapy water to check for leaks.
Are either of these emergency problems that I should fix before we hit the road? Or could they be handled along the journey? (We will be in Iowa for a few weeks and I could possibly plan a head with a shop to get the service done there. . . or anywhere along our route for that matter)
any input or advice is much appreciated, and thank you all of your help so far
