Front End Problems
I have been lurking these forums for about a year and a half, and have recently landed a job and plan to join as a paying member in the coming weeks. I have a few questions for you.
1.) I have a 2000 F 250 4x4 reg cab that has recently started a "squeek"/noise in the front end. It seems to come whenever the suspension goes up and down through its range of motion and it sounds/feels like it is coming from under the drivers side floor boards? I have search the forum and read about the leaf spring shims, do you think this could be the cause? I believe the truck has the original shocks(130,xxx miles), could this be the cause?
2.) My buddy has a 2002 F250( stock with a diablo tuner, I know) with around 140,000 miles and he has been experiencing front end "looseness" He claims that he has had everything replaced in the front end, except for the steering box. He says that he has a ton of understeer and the steering is really sloppy. Any ideas? I know his truck has been to the "shop" repeatedly and everytime he gets it back its not much better.
Any help would be much appreciated
