Driver's Seat Height Adjustment Shock

Another loyal Blue Bird customer shares his expertise with the rest of us!

Driver's Heater


Broken seat height adjustment shock on the drivers seat.

The driver's seat shock may have been over torqued when installed allowing either end to break off the shock.

Some 2010 Blue Bird D3s, All Americans, and Visions

The shock is installed with self-locking nylock nuts that should not be tightened fully. They should only be snug against the shock allowing room to pivot.
