Summary:
The welds at the right side lower control arm bracket to axle tube attachment may have inadequate fatigue life due to poor weld quality. This can lead to separation of the control arm bracket from the axle tube. If the bracket separates the vehicle could experience reduced directional stability, braking degradation and/or vehicle pull under braking.

Remedy:
Dealers will replace the front axle with a properly welded front axle. The manufacturer reported that owner notification would begin during February 2000. Owners who do not have their front axles replaced within a reasonable time should contact Chrysler at 1-800-992-1997.
