Vehicle Annual Safety Inspections:
Inspect for and reject if:
-Any modification has been made that affects normal functioning of the shock absorbers. The inspector should operate the vehicle when in doubt. (If there is no evidence of the convolutions (coils) of the spring hitting one another, one pair (2) of nonmetallic coil spring stabilizers may be present in each of a vehicle's front coil springs, provided the installation of the stabilizers does not cause the springs to be higher than their original height.)
-Lift blocks have been used on front axle (N/A to Explorers)
-Any modification has been made to the front end suspension which reduces turning radius, bypasses safety components of original steering mechanism or if there is any lateral movement between the axle and frame.
-A body lift larger than 3” has been installed.
-Any modification has been made to cause the wheels to come in contact with the body under normal operating conditions (i.e. rubbing).
-Any modification has been made to any part of the steering or suspension system that affects proper steering or suspension or ANY part of the original suspension system has been disconnected. (DOH!!!!)
-Reject vehicle if there is noticeable play at any point in the steering mechanism (Except General Motors products.) LOL!! Sorry, just had to include that, it really says that!
-Reject vehicle if the steering stops have been removed or adjusted in so that steering radius is reduced.
-Any part of the steering/suspension is missing, bent, cracked, or broken.
