    Default Clockspring Recall?

    Just read on two other forums that Chrysler has a silent recall on jeeps 97 and up for the clockspring.

    Anybody else know anything about this? This would be awesome as mine is broke and I really don't want to have to shell out $220 for the part.
    Just because the road stops doesn't mean you have to!

    I usually check the nhtsa.dot.gov site to check recalls and this is what I found for my 06 Wrangler.

    You can use their recall search here: http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/recalls/recallsearch.cfm
