    Hi, my Homesteader angles fine to the right, but angling to the left it "jerks" a lot. If on the ground or agains the snow it goes left OK, but when in the air, it just shakes a lot. Up and down no problem.

    Any ideas ?

    Thanks

    This is a common problem. There is a convertion spring kit from western/fisher. Its free from the dealer. If not, the valve body and poppet valve are sticking.
