Manufacturer Involved in This Recall: Ford Motor Company
Manufacturer Responsible for This Recall: Ford Motor Company
Report Received Date: March 3, 1976
Summary: Ford Campaign No. 185. 1974-1975 B-Series and 1975 F-Series Trucks and Bus Chassis. Possibility that the front spring hanger bracket on which the channel and side plate components are insufficiently secured with upset rivets.
Consequence: If this condition exists, brackets installed on vehicles with frame reinforcements at the location of bracket attachment could become loose and crack in severe duty service. This cracking may result in complete separation of bracket from frame. This, in turn, could allow front axle displacement or separation from vehicle with loss of steering control with little or not warning to driver. In addition, Ford Parts and Service Division has reported sales of approximately 1,500 suspect spring hanger brackets as replacement parts for 1967 through 1973 B-Series vehicles.
Remedy: Correct by inspecting and replacing hanger brackets with new FMVSS 121 level components using special bolts instead of rivets.
