RepairPal Expert Overview
Ford has recalled 1990 F-Super Duty trucks and F-Super Duty Motor Home chassis because of the hydroboost steering gear return line plumbing. On certain vehicles, due to the routing of the return line, the hydroboost may stay engaged lightly, which may cause added brake wear and tear. Dealers will replace the return line and repair damaged brake components.
