2004 Chevrolet Corvette RecallsControl Arm May Separate from the Steering Knuckle
The washer for the control arm ball stud may have been made of the wrong material, and may fracture and fall out, or become loose. The control arm may separate from the steering knuckle due to disengagement of the tapered stud, causing the vehicle to drop at that corner. In extreme situations, the wheel may separate completely from the vehicle. Either condition would impair handling and increase the chances of a crash. Dealers will inspect the torque on the ball stud joints on all front and rear lower control arms. If the torque is not to specification, the ball stud, knuckle, and nut will be replaced. If the torque is to specification, the dealers will replace only the ball stud nut and washer. The recall began August 24, 2004. The GM recall number is 04043.
