Ford Recalls 1999 and 2000 F-Super Duty

Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a  recall affecting the 1999 and 2000 Ford F-Super Duty.  The affected models were manufactured between July 1999 and May 2000.

The affected motor home chassis and heavy duty trucks have tie rod ends and/or drag link assembly ends that could have insufficient hardness in the ball stud. This could result in premature wear and, potentially, separation of the ball stud from its socket.

17,700 automobiles are affected by this recall.

Dealers will replace the tie rod ends and/or drag link assemblies.

The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Dec. 4, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673.

[NHTSA Recall No. 00V246111, Mfg. #00S48]
