Weld splitting at right lower control arm. Dealer said not under warranty even though the weld should be the strongest part.I was aslo told they had seen one or two other trucks with this problem.this also caused right front brake pad/rotor to freeze up as in metal to metal with no warning requiring me to replace rotor and pads.
