Pierce Manufacturing "Pierce" is recalling certain model year 2015 Saber, Enforcer, Impel, and Velocity vehicles manufactured December 4, 2014, to March 23, 2015. The rear axle cast iron leaf spring spacer block may crack and fracture.
If the leaf spring spacer block fractures, the pieces may become a road hazard. If the entire spacer block separates from the vehicle, the alignment of the rear axle may suddenly shift. Either condition could increase the risk of a crash.
Pierce will notify owners, and dealers will replace the cast iron spring spacer block with a machined steel spring spacer block, free of charge. The recall began on March 23, 2015. Owners may contact Pierce customer service at 1-888-974-3723.
