Conversion and import specialist Performax International has issued a recall for 122 of its 2014 and 2015 model-year Ford F-250 and F-350 trucks over concerns of steering loss.
According to the company, the steering knuckle and steering stop could come into contact in some vehicles as a result of “normal” wear and tear.
If the condition occurs over an extended period of time, the excessive strain on the tie rod could cause the part to fail, which in turn results in a loss of steering.
Situations like car parks where constant full-lock inputs are required can exacerbate the condition.

Owners of the affected vehicles are urged to contact their local Performax dealer to arrange for the recall procedure to take place. For more information, customers can contact Performax International on 1800 737 367.
