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.

All I need to do is go down a street at 40 + miles per hour, hit a bump or turn to the left just slightly and the front end shimmies violently. I have a brother that is a Ford tech and he tells me it is the tires that cause the problem. so I have tried different tires and they all do the same so I don't believe the tires are the problem. I have taken it in for an alignment and the don't find any thing worn out. So no matter what I have done in the years I have had two of the same truck they both did and the one I have still shimmies really bad.
