Vehicles Affected: Approximately 9,600 model-year 2019 Ford Super Duty F-250 and F-350 heavy-duty pickup trucks equipped with single rear wheels and dual rear wheels and 4×4 capability
The Problem: The front axles may contain a wheel end yoke that was not properly welded to the axle tube end, increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect the front axle wheel yoke weld location. If the weld is found to be inaccurately located, the axle assembly will be replaced for free.
