problem #1

Nov 152007

F-150 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 89,000 miles
I had a clunking sound under my 2004 F150 4X4. Pulled off the road and found out that the center support bearing on my drive shaft had worn out. Luckily I found out before getting on the highway for a long trip or the shaft would have eventually eaten through and caused major harm to the truck and possibly ourselves and any others involved from an accident. I cannot find any parts to replace the center support bearing (csb). All after market parts suppliers cannot find a replacement part that is even made. The Ford dealership wants to sell me the entire drive shaft for $700 when the csb is only a $20-30 part - if Ford would supply/make the part. This is not the first part I have had a very difficult time finding for this truck!
