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.

1998 Chevrolet Blazer Owner Comments

  • 87,000 miles


I purchased a 98 blazer from a friend of mine who bought it new himself. He replaced the upper & lower ball joints 1,000 miles after the warranty ran out (what a surprise). I purchased it with 55,000 miles on it. I greased them up along with every oil change. After buying new tires I replaced uppers & lowers on advice from a mechanic at 70,000 miles along with a front end alignment. Now thinking I was good to go for awhile my new tires started wearing unevenly at (87,000) miles so I went to a different shop for an alignment and was told once again the ball joint were shot along with the idler arm & pitman arm. Okay I replaced them all but now after only getting 17,000 miles out of my new tires I'm gunshy on buying new skins. Any one else have this problem?
