Part 2:

Doing ongoing work to the TV, getting it ready for the cross country run, so while checking , I find that the U bolts holding the airbag base to the axel are all barley tight, like just enough to position during install, but never torqued down after alignment.

I wonder what would have happened going over independence pass (12,000ft) had that blown apart.

Never going to allow CW to install anything again.

CW stories are the reason I do all of my own installations and repairs. My job is always going to be better than the dealer's.

Wire loom is also a good anti-abrasion material. It slips easily over wire, plastic or copper tubing, it's cheap, and it just makes a professional looking installation.

Well, I had the same experience with the loose nuts on the u bolts. We were leaving Charleston last spring and the right rear calliper seized and overheated the rotor. Coincidently we found a Firestone Service shop for repairs and the mechanic found the nuts loose and tightened them. They were originally installed by a very reputable local Truck Service Company at home. Thanks for the reminder to check them again.
