Rubbing Noise from left side

Recently I noticed a rubbing noise when I turn. It doesn't happen often but the front left feels loose. When I came home this afternoon I looked under the truck and this part looks like it shifted an inch. The ring around the axel was also loose.

Can anyone tell me what this part is? What could be the issue?

Taking her in to the mechanic on Wednesday.

Thank you in advance

IIRC that is a dust seal. Not worth replacing unless you have to do ball joints or something else. Ford has an updated design that is better (AC3Z-1S175-A).

thank you for the response. Yesterday I had notice that the inside of the axel was showing, could it possibly be moving inside?

The truck isn't pulling and is running great, just getting a little rubbing noise when I am making turns. It doesn't happen all of the time.

I don't think so. There is an inner axel seal. All that one does is keep the dust out. Its kind of a lot of labor to fix unless you are doing other things.

put some grease on that seal and push it back in. Thats not your issue, so dont let your mechanic sell you on it.

Get it to a shop that is good with alignments and have it checked out.

Thank you guys for all of the input. I'll bring it into the shop tomorrow and grease that ring and push it back in. It doesn't feel like anything major.

I haven't seen the new style dust seal pop out like that before

you might have a unit bearing issue ? have them check

Thank you. It does sound like a bad bearing when the rubbing sound comes and goes. I'll be sure to let him know when he is looking at it.

be prepared a unit bearing is costly
aftermarkets are available but most of us like the OEM Timken brand
just try to source the Timken at other than a dealer

you can jack up the truck and see if that wheel has slop while you rock the tire
