Braun Northwest is recalling 23 model year 2019-2020 RAM 4500/5500 vehicles with Liquid Spring rear suspension systems.

The rear brake caliper flexible line in the affected suspension systems may have been routed so that it contacts a suspension component, possibly causing excessive wear and a loss of rear brakes.

A worn rear brake line may leak fluid, resulting in a partial or complete loss of the rear brakes, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Braun Northwest will notify owners, and dealers will install a repair kit to each rear caliper and modify the rear brake caliper flexible line mounting. Any worn rear brake caliper flexible lines will be replaced as needed, free of charge.

The manufacturer has not yet provided a schedule for recall notification.

Owners may contact Braun Northwest customer service at (360) 748-0195.
