problem #1

Apr 252002


  • 138,000 miles
While performing maintenance (wheel bearing replacement) I discovered a through and through crack in the steering knuckle at the point of attachment of the tie rod end on the drivers side, the casting was split which would have allowed the tie rod to disconnect and potentially fatal consequences. The car is a 2002 Buick Century custom with 138,000 miles.
