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.

2002 Dodge Durango Owner Comments

I have a 2002 Durango with 75,000 (relatively trouble free) miles. However, I started to have the Front End Squeeking. The dealer claimed it was the ball joints and/or front shocks, but I felt it was something else in the front end. Being an engineer (and a backyard mechanic) I poked around to see what I could find. While someone pushed on the front end of the truck, I climbed under and listened for where the squeek was coming from. I was pretty confident that it was coming from the front swaybar bushings. I sprayed a little WD-40 into each of the 4 bushings. Lo and Behold the squeek went away! Of course, this little lubrication didn't last too long. I replaced the bushings and have been squeek-free for at least 1 year.

My suggestion, bring your Durango to a reputable garage and have the bushings checked and/or replaced. If you use the same lubrication method like I did, you can find out yourself before you bring it to the garage. The whole job should be under an hour to do and the bushings are relatively inexpensive.

Good Luck!
