    I saw a bobtail on the side of the road with a burnt up pair of drive tires just last week. And now that I think about it, the week before that I saw a driver had dropped his trailer on the shoulder and pulled forward twenty feet; there was emergency crews on the scene and all their attention was on the passenger drives. That driver's quick thinking might have saved his cargo.

    No. Should I have looked for one? And if so, why?

    Might have to check Haldex’s website to see if they have any info regarding the issues.

    I've experienced a punctured brake diaphragm. Its pretty easy to notice, you can hear the air plain as day flowing thru the dash valve.
