To elaborate on the issue, the rear leaf spring in the suspension may be fractured with an insufficient diameter in the front eye. If you are wondering what a front eye is, you ought to know how important it is. It is one of the most important components while fixing the suspension setup with the chassis.

If the discussed issue shows up, there could be unavoidable accidents. The driver might lose control, causing injury to the self, the occupants and also the outside pedestrians. Though the automaker is contacting the owners itself, if you have purchased your D-Max in this period, you can call any dealer nearest to you and arrange for an inspection and replacement (if required).
