Hey guys..... i started to get a squealing noise from the front end about a week ago... i assumed it was brakes and would fix it soon. Well today it got bad quick. Started with a rubbing noise and a squishing noise then it would pull hard to one side and was hard to steer.

When i barely made it home i took the truck and jacked it up on the drivers side where the noise was. I placed my hands at 12 and 6 and went to push and pull. There was a ton of movement.....it seems the ball joints are not moving, but there is a lot of movement at the u joint and behind it.....

I need to know if it is the u-joints or the hub assembly...it was very hot when i took off the wheel to inspect. And the caliper is nearly locked up pushing the pad into the rotor.....help this is my only transportation.:confused:

It is wheel bearing.Once it goes the wheel starts riding on the caliper.The faster you go the less is grinds<LMFAO that is a joke not serious DON'T DO IT even though I did.

Quick fix go buy one.They are about 350 bucks.Use to come with lifetime warranty.All your major part stores will have them in stock.Easy as hell to replace like under a hour.

you can get them cheaper from a non ford dealer (napa) if you can get by with out the rig ebay had them for 150 at one time with a lifetime warranty. which ever option you take, remove the caliper slide bolts and reinstall them with locktite.
