This may result in the "loss of directional stability" in the left front wheel, increasing the risk of a crash, Chrysler said.

However, 90% of the time, the outer tierods are the same part on either side, so if they are prone to failure on the drivers side, what makes them different from the passenger side?

Huh. I havent got nothing on this. But I did get the truck used from the dealer and they probably fix the recalls before they resell them. Just a guess, but that would make sense..

You can always check with the dealer for info on any recalls too.
