Yes Dennis just had mine done the other day.

Of course they had to order the parts. It is U bolts, nuts and washers.

Did you just go to an authorized Freightliner service center? I don't know why it took so long, but the recall notice for my rig just showed up this week.

Yes, was scheduled for a PM anyway and showed them the letter, they already
knew about it. It is not a Recall, it is a Service Campaign, which means that
if your unit needs it they then get the parts and do it. Mine must have needed
it and they did it. It was only about 1.5 hour labor, but took a day to get the
parts shipped in.

At the top of the document it says "NHTSA RECALL 19V747.

Apparently some of the front axles are round on the bottom and the stabilizer mounts are designed to be installed on a flat bottom. If your axle bottom is round it could cause the mounts to break. They replace the U bolts and add some washers as spacers if needed.

This is not the same fix that replaced the rubber bushings with clevis style end links that was a topic last year for some of the older model Dx3's.

It says it affects "certain" 2017 units but mine is a 2018 (probably has a 2017 chassis).

If you look at the link someone provided earlier in this thread, there are some good "right" and "wrong" pictures. It would be easy to crawl underneath to determine if your rig needs the fix and possibly save yourself a long trip to an authorized service center.

Thanks RV Randy for clarifying that for me. We did get a letter about this so I guess we're affected. We have to take it in for regular service, plus get the pedal adjusted, we still have minimal power unless using cruise.

Don't pay to have the pedal adjusted, took me all of 15 minutes to do mine and it made the biggest difference in the world.

Same problem that I had, put 1/2" spacer behind bottom bolts on throttle and it is awesome now.
