2007 Ford F350 Super Duty: with 57,000 miles..vibration..new tires…

Customer Question
I have a 2007 Ford...
I have a 2007 Ford F350 Super Duty with 57,000 miles. It recently developed a vibration. I had new tires installed and ballanced, thinking this might be the problem. They discovered a bad u- joint so they replaced all of them and checked the center bearing on the hanger. they said that was good. $350 later with parts and laber, the vibration is still there. It's not as bad, but deffinately still there. It occcures between 50 and 60 miles an hour, then goes away after 60. Never had this before. They seem to be out of ideas. Mike

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
