From our colleagues at Cars.com, Chrysler has issued a recall for 32,865 Dodge Ram 2500, 3500 and 3500 Chassis Cab pickup trucks for the 2008-09 model years. The issue involves the Powers and Sons steering linkage, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The steering linkage drag link inner tie rod may fracture, which could result in a sudden loss of control over steering and increase the risk of a crash.

Dodge dealers will replace the steering linkage drag link inner tie rod end assembly and inspect the steering linkage damper bracket, all free of charge. The recall is Chrysler recall number H36.

For more information, contact Chrysler at 800-853-1403 or the NHTSA vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236.

Attached is Chrysler LLC's ("Chrysler") Defect Information Report, complying with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 573, Defect and Noncompliance Reports, which contains details of a potential safety related defect in some aftermarket replacement equipment; i.e., steering linkages sold during the 2008 calendar year for use as service equipment on 2003-2008 model year Dodge Ram heavy duty pickup trucks. These linkages may experience drag link inner tie rod to pitman arm ball stud fracture. This could result in a loss of steering control and cause a crash without warning. Also, the steering damper attaching bracket may yield and shift on the linkage. This could result in a restricted ability to turn the vehicle in one direction. This recall is associated with Chrysler Recall H36, which covers 2008-2009 model year Dodge Ram pickups that have the same steering linkages installed as original equipment.
Although only approximately 18,000 aftermarket steering linkages with these problems were sold, Chrysler will notify the owners of all 2003-2008 model year Dodge Ram heavy duty pickups (other than those covered by Chrysler Recall H36) by mail, since those vehicles could potentially have had the affected linkages installed during service. Owners who had vehicle steering linkage service during the 2008 calendar year will be requested to take their vehicle to a dealer for inspection and for repair if required.

I haven't received a letter yet, and given the time frame here, I don't expect to. I had to find this one on my own. They ordered the parts for mine yesterday and will likely do the recall next week.

Chrysler has declared an enormous recall of Dodge Ram pickup trucks due to a problem with the steering system at the left-front wheel. Chrysler is recalling nearly 243,000 trucks in the U.S. alone. All sizes of Ram pickup of numerous versions from the 2008 model year to the present are involved. Here is the proof: Chrysler announces Dodge Ram recall over faulty tie rods.
