 A new recall for the Chevrolet ZR2 has surfaced in owners' clubs and groups. The recall, GM 17345, is related to a failure of the front shock. Those who follow this new off-road truck may recall that GM opted to use a new-style shock developed by an F-1 racing supplier. The recall notices posted say the failure is, "...may have a leaking front shock absorber. noise as a result of contact between the upper control arm and service stop, as well as a potential fractured shock absorber piston rod." Owners are reporting that the inspection is related to manufacture date and that not all ZR2 trucks have the defect that leads to the failure.
