Defect SummaryChampion bus is recalling 14 my 2008 3035re buses built on freightliner chassis and equipped with zf model 8018 steering gears. these gears may have been assembled with the incorrect recirculating ball spacer. this could potentially allow the recirculation balls to escape from the recirculation ball circuit resulting in a loss of steering.
