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.

The Ball Joints on my 1998 Dodge Ram has been squeaking since 2003. From what was told to me by an Alignment/Brake shop is that it would cost $1200.00 to have this fixed. I also was told that Dodge is known of having problems with their Ball Joints. I have noticed also that a lot more Dodge trucks are making the same squeaking sound.
