Tenneco Automotive is recalling 2,394 MOOG K500359 ball joints, for aftermarket installation on model year 2015-2018 Ford F-150 trucks.
The ball joint may have a misaligned dust boot and may be missing the alignment hole and installation warning tag, which may lead to improper alignment of the ball joint.
An incorrectly installed ball joint may cause the ball joint stud to break, which can compromise front wheel control, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Tenneco will notify owners, and dealers will inspect, and -- if necessary -- replace the ball joint free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin May 10, 2021.
Owners may contact Tenneco customer service at (800) 625-9319.
