Ford replacing Half of FICM?

Took her in to have the FICM and oil cooler checked this am. Service dep just called with the following

FICM is dropping to 40 V after start. Replacing the upper half of the FICM under warranty. Didn't know you could do just half. Are they cracking these things apart?

Have a 20-25 degree split between EOT and ECT when towing. Oil cooler needs a rebuild kit under warranty. Just had a fluid flush with VC-9 and new fluid two months ago. They will check the EGR cooler while they have it out. Thinking about having them replace the EGR cooler anyway if they say the old one is good. I thought you had to drain the oil for this. Dealer says that they do not have too. Thoughts?

Also stated that the rear diff pinion seal is leaking. Fluid is low. Does $232.00 sound about right?

Stated shocks needed replaced. Declined this one because I can do myself. Any recommendations on some good shocks.

Agreed that even if they won't replace the EGR cooler under warranty, it is best to toss a new one on. Considered the Bulletproof EGR cooler? The dealer may have to wait for your part, but its your truck....

I agree but reading the TSB, they are just required to test the egr. They haven't called back yet about the egr cooler.
