The company reports that out-of-specification adjustments can be made to the tie rods during a wheel alignment, due to faulty tie rod extensions.

If such an adjustment is made, this could cause an unsafe thread engagement between the tie rod and the steering rack, which may cause steering vibration.

The vibration through the steering rack could pose a hazard to the driver.
