Here is a good thread on it with videos and photos.
Strange noise after shutdown. - Diesel Forum - TheDieselStop.com
That is exactly what the problem is and part.

I was visiting my friends at my last week dealership and they told me Ford just sent a notice out telling them not to replace it and that it is completely normal!!
For the price of this truck it shouldn't make any noises! Sadly this is what has become of big businesses and their so called warranties. The days of the the customer is always right is GONE (not just in the auto industry) and it is now all about stock price, investors and bottom line!!!!
