Suspension & Steering, August 26, 1993

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The lock nuts used to hold the left and right front axles to the suspension struts may not have been properly manufactured. The lock nuts may break and cause the suspension struts to separate from the axle, which may result in a loss of steering control. In most cases, no noticeable symptoms may be present, but you may hear a clunking type noise from the front of the vehicle or experience a vibration in the floorboard. Contact your dealer for more information about this recall. Dealers will replace the lock nuts.
