Are the trailing arms on a 96 Ultra supposed to camber out or be vertical? *Anybody know?*

I cannot remember. I was going to look at my tech bulletin last night, but I forgot. I will try to look it up for you.

Thank you. I hit a stump last year and bent one ski so that it was more vertical and it steered less sloppy. So, I bought 2 trailing arms. Then, when I looked at my son's XLT they looked more vertical like the one I bent.

My service manual shows the Ultra SP has the IFS 41 front suspension. With the front end elevated, the camber should be zero. So the spindles should be straight up and down.

That makes sense, because it was bow legged until I hit the stump and now it steers better. If anyone needs me to fix their steering problem on their sled - give me a call, I know how to fix it. [1237] Now I need to find another stump for the other side.[;)]

Anyone ever bent back a trailing arm? With heat or a B.A. bar?

I have seen people weld 2 pieces of steel on both sides, but I wouldn't bend it back in place. It would be prone to break.
