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.

Had not previously heard anything unusual. Have owned 2 other Suburban besides this one. I was leaving a parking lot, turning left onto the street when I heard a pop. I then heard some rattling and squeaking. I pulled over and could not see anything, so I drove it home...about 5 miles. Took off the lugs:nuts cover and 2 broken stems fell on the ground with the nut still on them and the rest of the lugs: Nuts were extremely loose. Had all the tires rotated at Firestone on 10-7-99 and the mileage was 42,720. None of the other wheels were affected.all lugs: Nuts were on tight except for this one wheel. Found out that Ford had a recall on all 1998 lugs: Nuts on Ford F150 pick ups...could this be related?
