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.

new knuckle but dealer doesn't make a replacement part so....

well i call the dealer they run the vin and tell me," we don't make a replacement steering knuckle for that year any more". so i have a wheel bearing buster with no way to fix it. even if i went to a scrap yard i wouldn't be able to find one that year and in good shape. so dodge should step up on this one and provide a fix for my problem, cause know it wears my tires and wrecks the rest of the steering components and is very frustrating.
