1994-1995 Dodge Ram Trucks Recalled

Washington, DC (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration today published the recall of certain 1994-1995 Dodge Ram trucks manufactured between July 1993 - June 1995 because the front suspension spring/shock towers can crack and eventually separate from the vehicle frame. The shock tower could damage the rear wheel brake lines resulting in loss of rear brake system pressure. This would create the potential for increased stopping distances.

This recall affects 2500 and 3500 series 4x4 regular cab pickup trucks produced before March 21, 1995; 2500 and 3500 series 4x4 club cab pickup trucks produced before June 8, 1995; and 3500 series 4x2/4x4 chassis cab trucks produced before June 21, 1995

Approximately 64,000 vehicles are affected by this recall.

Dealers will inspect the spring/shock tower and any vehicles exhibiting cracking will have the tower replaced. Vehicles that do not show any cracking will have a weld-on reinforcement added. DaimlerChrysler has not scheduled owner notification pending proof testing of the reinforcement.

Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Chrysler at 1-800-992-1997.
