Summary:

The mounting bracket that attaches the suspension fluid tank to the frame may fail, allowing the fluid tank to separate from the vehicle.
Consequence:
      If the suspension fluid tank mount fractures and the tank separates from the chassis, the tank may become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
      Halcore will notify owners, and Halcore dealers will install a re-designed bracket, free of charge. The recall began in October 2014. Owners may contact Halcore customer service at 1-614-539-8181. Owners may also contact Liquid Spring customer service at 1-765-474-7816 extension 109.
