1978 Eagle 05, havng trouble with tag axle brakes locking up sliding tires and the drive axle and steering axle dont appear to be getting enough pressure to stop bus. have tried adjustment etc., someone told me the tag axle brake should have a valve reducing pressure to the chambers? maybe the torsion bars set up is too light on these wheels? any help 0r suggestions thanks

Woody, The first thing I would want to know is the individual weights of the Right and Left Tag. Second, was anything altered, such as ride height, prior to the problem you're experiencing?
