I have an air brake question: 06 Freightliner. On my drive

Customer Question

I have an air brake question:
06 Freightliner. On my drive axles; I have recently had all my drums, pads, seals, s-cam bushings, and auto slacks replaced. New problem arose, where all my slacks are WAY out of adjustment--and I mean this happens after a day of driving, every day! I'm at a loss as to the cause of this problem. Any ideas as to what may be causing this? I didn't have this problem before having the s-cam bushing work done: did they mess something up in the process, possibly?
