Chrysler is recalling more than 60 model year 2015 RAM 2500 trucks, and RAM 3500 trucks and cab chassis. The affected vehicles may have inadequate welds securing the front track bar frame brackets, possibly resulting in the bracket components separating from the frame.

If the bracket components separate from the frame, the vehicle may have a reduced response to steering input, increasing the risk of a crash.

The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will weld on a new track bar frame bracket or replace the frame of the vehicle, free of charge.

For further information regarding this recall, Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at (800) 853-1403, recall number S58.
