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.

Steering became excessively loose. Took truck in for alignment and the tech found the loose ball joints for the pitman arm and idler arm - and showed me - yes they were shot.... (at only 62K miles). Had shop replace immediately (didn't have time to do it myself) at about $500 with an alignment. I priced parts at Autozone & OReilly - much cheaper than at garage...

I took the truck home and then replaced the rear U-Joint on the driveshaft - what a pain to get the old one out....
