Feb 07, 1997
Location:
Eugene, OR

when driving at any speed, there is vibration within the frame, tire is worn out. vechicle isn't staying on track, it keeps going into other lanes. also, frame is bent. *ak the consumer points out that the appeal forum is helpful but there should be a method for consumers to reach the manufacturers easily. *yh consumer states the problem is proximate to the cross members within the frame rails, they are of insufficient strength to keep the frame rails within acceptable flexibility parameters, this causes a temporary breech in the contact points between the frame and the forward drive axle, this results in the forward drive axle becoming misaligned when closed and causes a thrust problem to the steer axle as the forward drive is now pushing it at an angle to a forward straight line, there is stress on rear suspension assembly, the net result is component breakage, premature wear, and a truck that drifts and wanders, volvo replaced the rear suspension, front bushings, straighten frame, and they also bent the steer axle and attempted to push it further back thus necessating that they bent the steering rod. *slc
