Altec Industries, Inc. is recalling certain model year 2012 Aerial Device vehicles built on a Navistar Terrastar chassis because the Altec-installed torsion bar increases the ride height of the front suspension, which when the vehicle hits bumps, may cause the vehicle to alter its steering direction.
As the vehicle hits bumps, it may deviate from the intended line of travel, increasing the risk of a crash.
Altec will notify owners, and will install an updated bracket and spring kit, free of charge. The safety recall began on August 27, 2012. Owners may contact Altec Industries at 1-877-462-5832.
