Re: What I saw on my way home from the firing range today.
I think the bend in the back is a combination of some poor measuring when making the new body mounts and quite possibly an optical illusion due to the downward angle of the ramp section. I really don't think that bus should be having that much trouble with the weight on the back. The GVWR of my bus is 30,000 lbs. Loaded down with fuel, people, and stuff I'm well under 21,000 with the bulk of the reserve weight capacity on my rear axle which sports an 18,000 lbs GAWR. That rig and the tongue weight from the trailer can't top 6000 lbs. Those trucks are surprisingly light all things considered.
