Steer axle recall expands to include nearly 19,000 Peterbilt, Kenworth, International trucks
EQUIPMENTMatt Cole |October 09, 2017

A recent recall affecting certain Dana Spicer D- and E-Series steer axles has prompted Navistar and Paccar to recall nearly 19,000 combined trucks. Volvo, Mack and Autocar already recalled more than 1,000 trucks due to the steer axle issue.

According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents, the castellated nut on the steer axles may not be properly torqued, allowing the tie rod to loosen. If the tie rod loosens, it can disconnect from the steering knuckle, causing a complete loss of steering in the trucks.

The recall affects trucks equipped with certain Dana D-Series and E-Series steer axles. NHTSA documents state that drivers of affected trucks would notice an audible noise and looseness in steering before the tie rod fully disconnects.

The recall issued by Paccar includes approximately 17,737 model year 2016 Peterbilt and Kenworth trucks in most models. Affected Kenworth models include: K170, T170, T270, T370, T440, T470, T660, T680, T800, T880 and W900. Peterbilt trucks affected by the recall include the following models: 220, 320, 325, 330, 337, 348, 365, 367, 382, 384, 389, 389G, 567, 579 and 587.

Anyone find the new torque spec?. As far as I know, most castle nuts on class-8 vehicles are set to 130 ft-lb, then tightened to the the next open keyslot. That is what I have mine on my Hendrickson front end at anyways, and never had an issue.
