It goes from a slight chatter to a loud rattle within 20 - 30 miles and the entire center is broken loose when they remove it. I've seen a few other posts with the same situation.
Interestingly when first purchased it was replaced at 10K and again at 14K, this time using the Ford TSB 99-23-6. That lasted until 102K. Then replaced at 124K, 129L, 142K and 147K. I now have 157K and it is broken "again".
So I am told keep the 7.3L, so far the best Ford diesel. The truck is immaculate. But this is getting old and I don't even tow regularily any more since I quit formula racing in 2006, except for an ocassional trip to the lake with a 20' boat on an aluminum trailer.
I'm a Ford truck guy and refuse to try Mopar again and won't go GM.
