Thanks for the reply StickerMonster, too bad I can't read PDF files on my computer... by the way, nice work on your Ex, I've been following your progress, it's coming along nicely. I think I might steal your idea, and swap the black bumper trims parts from my F250 to our Ex like you did, then paint the tan ones and the bumper for short term use on the F250. One of these days I'm gonna build some REAL bumpers from REAL metal, front and rear.
Now, back to the clock spring isssue... The other possiblity is that there is a berring going bad in the collumn, but I would think it would be a consistant sound, not randomly like what I'm getting. I get a scratchy, broken/flopping spring sound, slight most of the time, but louder more often now... I thought the air bag, cruise control, and horn were the items that made use of the clock spring, are there actully sliding contacts/rings that the air bag uses?
