What should i do

Ok, so i need to get my front end checked out because its feels like im sitting in a vibrating chair when driving down the highway. I would take it to ford but if i do that obviously they are going to drive it and if i dont take my tune off they are going to know i have a tune. But if i return it to stock my CEL will come on because of my egr delete and i definitely dont want them to see that. Trying to keep my warranty. Any suggestions?

maybe your wheels are out of balance or somethin just take it to a mechanic you know well and tell him the problem

umm take it to a tire shop and say you have a terrible vibration and see if they have any idea cause i would think it might just be tie rods, wheels off balance, etc...

I agree with TNstroke...any "Free estimate joint" should be able to tell you what you're looking at pretty easily. If you don't like their price and you're still under your bumper-to-bumper 36m/36k mileage warranty then take a chance by telling the dealer you just want the specific concern addressed and not to perform any flash or OBDII connections...no diagnostics required.

^ ya i agree because your tuner and mods have absolutley no way of affecting those parts. unless they wanted to make up some bs saying those stock parts arent ment to handle more than stock power or something gay like that
