Summary: 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.
Consequence: As the vehicle hits bumps, it may deviate from the intended line of travel, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy: Altec will notify owners, and will install an updated bracket and spring kit, free of charge. Altec has not provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Altec Industries at 1-877-462-5832.
