We have a TON of suspension and steering problem threads in the Super Duty forum, and more than a few in this one. I wouldn't cast stones from the glass house.

In particular I remember a thread...

There are an awful lot of people who believe that, but these trucks are all heavy enough to not be covered under CAFE. I haven't found any shred of evidence suggesting the switch to 5w20 in the...

Pretty sure that message is prompting you to test your coolant nitrate levels, not pour in the additive.

Which message center do you have? The 4.3" LCD screen, or the base 2-line display?

There was a time when I would have been concerned about it, but I've read enough over the years to know that the difference between a 5w20 and 5w30 is quite small. I would have happily run the 5w20...

Yup, you can still lift it by the oil pan. I'd put a block of wood between the jack and the pan to avoid damage, but it should be fine.



Big block? Small block? Isn't that GM terminology?

I've done the same in the past, but in hindsight it wasn't the right decision. The particular part is an eccentric bolt used to adjust the alignment of the left-rear wheel, and I imagine they'd have...

Sounds about right.

Called them this morning, and they were still having trouble locating the offending bolt. Stopped in and he showed me the parts that broke, and that they were going to have...

Not necessarily. You can spin both wheels with an open differential.

Found this video about the subject, it's pretty well done and worth a look:

Good evening everyone!

Hannah had a rough day today. Better when I left than when I got there though, so we're hoping she continues to improve.
