Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

I am a conversion kit fan now!!! I got sick and tired of my air ride suspension!!! They are over engineered pieces of crap in my opinion. Why would you design a suspension system that is going to be exposed to the elements UNDER a car that cannot withstand temperatures below 40 or above 94 degrees?!?! The system works like a house of cards.. once one component starts to fail, it starts to over work the other components until they fail as well. gave me peace of mind and a lifetime warranty.
