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.

F-350 4WD 8-cyl

The vehicle shook at 65 mph and shimmied when the brakes were applied. We first had tire rotated and balanced and a front end alignment with the replacement of right side ball joints. It did not correct the problem. When we returned the vehicle to the dealer for further repair, the dealer took us back to look at the rear brakes. The backing plates had failed due to rust and the pins for the parking brake shoes had pulled through. The dealer replaced both rotors, both brake shoes, the backing plates and the pads for the disk brakes.
