2025 Ford F-650, 750 Recalled Over Tie Rod Safety Issue

Ford Motor Company is recalling select 2025 Ford F-650 and F-750 models over an issue with the tie rods.

The defect: in affected vehicles, the front axle may contain tie rod ball studs that were improperly heat treated. As a result, they may crack and break.

The hazards: a tie rod ball stud that fails may lead to a front axle tie rod disconnection from the steering knuckle. This may also cause the passenger side wheel to become disconnected from the steering system. The driver side wheel will not be affected and will remain connected to the steering system because there is no effect to the drag link that connects directly to the driver side knuckle. If a separation does occur, degraded steering precision could follow, resulting in an increased risk of a crash.

Ford Motor Company is not aware of any crashes or injuries related to this condition.

Components: tie rod assembly

Affected vehicles: select 2025 Ford F-650 and F-750 models built between April 4th, 2024, and June 25th, 2024.

Number of vehicles affected: 2,605

The fix: the front axle tie rod assembly in affected vehicles will be inspected for its production date. If it is found to be within the affected range, the assembly will be replaced. This service will be performed at no cost to vehicle owners.

Owners should: wait for communications from Ford, which began on July 3rd, 2024. The Ford reference number for this recall is 24S42.
