Condition: During the winter months in the Snow Belt states, large quantities of salt are used to De-ice roads. Road salt may cause internal corrosion of the rear trailing arms.
Repair Procedure: Dealers will inspect the rear trailing arms for internal corrosion damage. The dealership will determine if trailing arms will be replaced. Trailing arms that do not need replacement will have drain hole added and be treated with a rust proofing coating.
