    Well I had been experiencing some noise coming from my drivers front coming from the axle.

    After almost a week at the dealer they are awaiting approval from Ford to replace the most of the front axle... new differential housing, axle tubes, and all the internals...

    Any opinions on this?? The truck has one 3500 miles and they have not been hard miles at all... only plowed with it 5 times.... The truck is an early 08 built in 5/07, I picked it up in October with 100 miles on it....

    I am just leery about getting that all back together right the first time out of the gate...

    Axle was probably set up wrong from the factory, clearances off, low fluid fill, poor machining of ring and pinion. Have seen them all.
