    Parts For Sale Potentially Original 3 Bow Roof Rack

    Rear Brake Drum to Disc Conversion

    Thanks ozziedog. I'll leave the rears on drums then and try your suggestions to see if that improves things. I do have a servo but might be time to swap it out as it's been on the bus since I bought it in 2014. Thanks again. P Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
