|Defect Summary||A hardened washer required in mounting the upper radius rod bracket to the top of the front axle was omitted during assembly. the omission of the hardened washer could cause a gap up to .063 between the top of the mounting flange and the steering gear assembly. this gap will prevent the specified clamping forces from being applied to the upper radius rod bracket. the inability to correctly clamp the upper radius rod bracket to the axle could cause abnormal stress loads to be applied to the bracket during vehicle operation. continued operation under these conditions could result in vertical bracket fracture. if complete separation of the bracket occurred, the front axle could shift, causing binding and rubbing of the steering shaft and, eventually, loss of steering control.|
|Corrective Summary||Dealer will inspect and, if necessary, replace brackets without charge to owner.|
|Notes||Vehicle description: buses.system: suspension; axle radius rod.consequences of defect: loss of steering control could result in a vehicleaccident and serious personal injuries.|
