This condition could cause "clunking" noise when steering as well as decreased steering effectiveness potentially resulting in a crash.


On certain sport utility vehicles, the two bolts that attach the steering gear assembly to the frame may have been over-tightened. This condition could result in one or both of the bolts fracturing, causing the steering gear to become loose.
Dealers will replace both the steering gear assembly mounting bolts and nuts free of charge. The recall began on April 27, 2007. Owners may contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673.
