i had to go to the dealership. i developed the deadly wobble....at 45,000. now at 60,000 and it is really really bad. got price quote for after market parts moog tie rods, plus ends....the labor is whats killing me. anyone know a good shop in chico, ca?

Now im hopping this will fix the wobble, however i fear the ball joints are bad too...

I have read up on this topic, seems like theres a TSB out there (but cant find it) that address this, and says Ford Motor will replace the bad tie rods, ends, ball joints upper and lower at their cost.....of course you have the be the original owner....from what i read....

If anyone knows the TSB im talking about please e mail me, I have a bill of 800 plus that just killed my summer vacation.

There is also some class action going on...something about ford using bad parts or something, im not sure. website id ford-problems.com

Also im told you can also get this solved by a steering stabilizer...any good ones?

hope anything i rambled on about helps.

I am not worried about bad parts Ford may have or may not have used. I am not worried about a class action law suit either, I am also not concerned about a TSB. Why because I have the Original Tie Rods on the truck. They have 165,000 miles on them. This just started a couple days ago. So I think I got my moneys worth out of them. I didn't know MOOG made tie rods. If so I think that is what I will go with. Being I have there lifetime warranty ball joints.
