Ok there are no messages for this vin, when did this problem start? Were the tires replaced trying to fix this? What is the size and brand of tires?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Michelin 275/60/20 ltx. Same as the stock tires. Problem started a few months ago. I changed the Trac bar bushing and it went away for a while. Now it is back very bad. I changed the shocks and sway bar links yesterday and today it is terrible. Worse than yesterday. Links and shocks are fastened tightly
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Grease in links too

Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 1 month ago

O​k sounds like you have done everything right, I have no answer because I can't drive the vehicle and it appears you have done already everything I would have. I can opt out and see if someone else has some more information if you like?

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Either that or refund my money
Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 1 month ago

I​ will opt out just to see if another expert has some more information, thanks Scott Don't reply to this as it locks me to the question.
