On certain Quad Cab pickup trucks equipped with a camper package and overload springs, the spacer plate could lead to deformation of the upper spring plate during assembly of the axle to the vehicle, resulting in a soft joint. The soft joint could cause the rear axle U-bolts to lose clamp load, resulting in displacement of the rear axle and a loss of vehicle control.
Dealers will remove the spacer plates and the spring plates will be replaced. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Feb.4,2001. Owners who do not receive the free label within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
