Product description
Risk
This product poses a serious risk of injuries because when the vehicle is regularly used under severe off road conditions, abnormal corrosion could occur on the pitman arm stud due to constant exposure to mud/water. This, in combination with excessive force applied to the pitman arm, could eventually lead to the failure of the pitman arm stud. The ball stud at the pitman arm, which connects the steering gearbox and the relay rod, can crack, so the driver cannot steer the vehicle, leading in the worst case to loss of steering control and accident.
