Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) recalled 172 Detroit Model 2 and 3 axles due to potential safety risk.
The steering arm and tie rod bolts may have a defective seam that can fracture.
A fractured bolt may cause a loss of steering, increasing the risk of a crash.
DTNA will notify owners, while dealers will replace the tie rod arm and steering arm bolts, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin June 10, 2021.
There have been no reported incidents to date.
