    LiquidSpring recalls Ram truck suspension systems

    The vehicle's brake line routing may cause wear and fluid leak

    LiquidSpring is recalling 397 Compressible Liquid Adaptive Suspension Systems, part numbers DS135RS3A, DS135RS3AF, DS135RS3-DM, sold for use with model year 2019-2020 RAM 4500 and 5500 vehicles.

    A worn rear brake caliper flexible line may cause brake fluid leakage which may result in a partial or complete loss of the rear brakes, increasing the risk of a crash.

    What to do

    LiquidSpring has notified the purchasers, and the affected vehicle manufacturers will file recalls to have their dealers inspect the rear brake caliper flexible lines for wear and install a kit to modify the rear brake caliper flexible line mounting and -- if necessary -- a kit to replace worn brake lines free of charge.

    The recall is expected to begin June 8, 2020.
