#1 of 17 Vibration Noise problem
Apr 18, 2002 (11:09 am)
I have less than 500 mi on 2002 Ford F150 Supercrew V8 4.6. On way home from dealer noticed vibration at 35-45 mph range, as well as, rattling noise in rear. Dealer has now replaced drive shaft and has a new rear end ordered to replace? anyone else had this type of problem.

I also have a 2002 supercrew with a vibration/noise problem.I am seeking replacement of the vehicle under the lemon law. See 02' S-CREW
vibration/noise. Three dealers two drivelines and one ring and pinion later the 52-60 mph vibe still is with the s-crew.
Have the pinion angle checked.Also,ask the service dept. to try diagnosing the vibration with an electronic digital vibration analyzer with two sensors.This should pinpoint the origin of your vibration.

Replace drive shaft has not changed anything. I took it back to dealer - next day - and was told they had ordered a new rear end - which has not been installed - (but let me take it home) Did not know they had ordered rear end before i took home.......but was told by salesman they had three trucks (mine included) with the same problem! ferdsford - i am ordering lemon law pack from state of georgia - so i can make sure i do everything in the right order.

ferdsford - where was your truck manufactured - do you think this is an assembly problem from plant - there are three of these types of issue with trucks at my one dealership that i am aware of.... .... my truck was manufactured in Kansas City Assembly Plant..? just trying to think of everything.

Has anyone checked the left to right angle of the drive shaft insuring its alignment? Some offset may cause vibrations.

My truck is 2 wd - is in the shop now checking for vibration cause. The noise evidently was the catalytic converter which has been changed out. The drive shaft was replaced. They've checked out the balancing on tires - and will benext week before its ready - today the service called and said they cannot find what's causing vibration. I will write down what you gave me obyone about the left to right angle of drive shaft; the pinion has been checked. Thanks.
