Imagine our surprise when my pal backed out of my drive way, and with
a loud bang, the front left wheel seperated from the A frame at the
lower ball joint. on a 97 F150 4X4. This could have been nasty if it
would have happened at speed, and just the prvious week or so it had
been returned to the Ford Dealer on a recall to check some steering
and suspension issues. The truck had 190K on it, and is not used for
off roading, or other serious macho pursuits. Is there a history of
defects in the front end on this model?
