I recently bought a F150(7 days ago) and I had the dealership put on some aftermarket wheels...They said they put on a leveling kit, and while the truck lost its rake, i looked for what ever they installed but didnt locate it...im looking in the wrong places. Anyway, the DAY i got my truck back from the dealership, i drove to my buddy's house to show off...When i left, i backed out of his driveway, turned the wheel clockwise to lock and heard a big "cha-chunk", as if something shifted in the suspension. Now my steering wheel is cocked to 2 o'clock when the wheels are straight. Today, i heard the noise again, but no real change in the steering wheel position. Anyone have an idea what this could be and if it could have anything to do with this leveling kit? All lug nuts are tight and the steering rack wasn't loose if it tugged on it with my hands.
It's under warranty, all of it since the dealer installed it. Just have it towed to the dealer and make them fix it. You have road side assistance which includes free towing to the dealer, so take advantage of it.
Have you taken it to the dealership yet? I'm anxious to find out what they said the problem was because my '05 does the same thing, but it eventually pops again and the wheel goes back to the proper alignment.
I installed a 6" Rancho lift with 35's and have had a warranty problem with this. One of the seals for the front driveshaft was leaking and they originally wanted to charge me full pop for the repair since it's been lifted, but I argued up a storm since they were also BS'ing me with what they had to do to replace the seal and managed to get out for $95. I'm afraid they are going to charge me for this as well.
Please please please give me an update, this is driving me nuts.
