Default Recall

Anyone else get a recall letter? 2003 thru 2008 1500,2500,3500.
They state LEFT TIE ROD BALL MAY FRACTURE UNDER CERTAIN DRIVING CONDITIONS
THIS COULD CAUSE A LOSS OF DIRECTIONAL CONTROL AND/OR CRASH WITHOUT WARNING.
Recall N62/NHTSA 13V-528

Just letting you know, I just got one today.

found more info at
http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/owners/...8&refurl=email

looks like the only 1500 listed is Mega Cab 4x4 2006-2008

SUMMARY:
Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2003-2008 Dodge RAM 2500 4x4 and 3500 4x4, model year 2007-2008 Dodge RAM 3500 4x2 Cab Chassis and model year 2006-2008 Dodge RAM 1500 Mega Cab 4x4 trucks manufactured February 12, 2002, through February 13, 2008. The left tie rod assembly may break.
CONSEQUENCE:
A failure of the tie rod assembly may result in a loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the steering linkage and install a new left tie rod assembly, as needed, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in December 2013. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753. Chrysler's recall campaign number is N62.
NOTES:
This recall supersedes Chrysler tie rod recall 11V350. Vehicles that were previously remedied under recall 11V350 are also affected by this campaign. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

If you are not the original owner of your ram and not getting the recall notices. Can you go to your local dodge dealer and have them go over all the recalls on your 2004 ram and do the repairs?

Yes, recalls are for current owners. You do not have to be the original purchaser.

I also have a 2004 3500, but it has a 6" lift kit on it and I think the tie rod assemblies may be changed out. This was done by the previous owner about 7 years ago. I might have the dealer check anyway.

Some do, some don't. I know on my Rancho kit, it replaces the stock tie rod ends with larger ones WITH ZIRCs but I've worked on trucks with Fabtech and Superlift that get by with the stockers.

Good idear to have them checked just to be sure...

I will, but I see no urgency in doing so as this truck has in the past had front tire balance problems where the whole front end would violently shake at 50 MPH, If the tie rod ends were faulty they would have broken during these shakes.

Also why doesn't my signature info show up in my post?

That's bad reasoning, dodge death wobbles are a combinations of manny factors, drag links, tie rods go on these trucks as often as you put butter on toast.

On the right hub were the drink link is connected, has this been greasesd?
GREASE Keeps this compression fitting from falling off, thiers no lock nut.

Well Dodge called this AM and the parts haven't showed up yet. So they had to re-schedule. I will let you all know once it happens.

Wish this nightmare would be over.....

What nightmare are you referring to? You had 2 posts on this thread, and none of them seem nightmarish to me!!
