    Watch For IS Installation Trouble.

    If you got an IS (Independent Suspension) installed lately look for this issue....

    The tabs that were welded on (not sure of their purpose) could interfere with the suspension movement causing the brake caliper mounting bracket to impact the tab(s) and break the mounting bracket.

    A friend told me he had this issue and allowed me to post the photo below showing what happened to him. You can see in the photo the tab had been hit a few times finally breaking the caliper mounting bracket. It wasn't an isolate incident (multiple brackets broke on his and another's rigs - a large Solitude and a Momentum).

    I check my installation today (installed the same time these folks had theirs installed) and I have the same tabs. So far no interference but I will be cutting these tabs flush with the frame to avoid any possibility of interference. Ours were all installed on the same days and by different techs in October. I'll be looking at another friends rig which was done last June/July to see if his is the same.

    Interesting. What's the purpose of the tabs? What did Morryde say in response to this?

    My guess is the tabs help align the steel beam MorRyd adds (just a guess tho). Don't know what MorRyde did or said to the individuals who experienced the problem.

    Getting mine done in April, will ask the questions about both recent noted issues mentioned, "coroplast cutting" and this new "tab" purpose.

    Will report back on what I find out...

    Somewhat discouraging to hear. Hope we hear from others on the forum who have had IS installed.

    What is the crack above the tab? Is it the frame?

    Just let them know not to mount those tabs near or above the caliper bracket and you should be OK. Although I am not sure why they have to poke out so far toward the tires.
