Ford E-150 Problem Report

Ford E-150 Front End May Make Rattle Noise Over Bumps, Handling Issues

(29 reports)

The front end may make a rattle noise over bumps. There may be handling issues, and play in the front wheels on inspection. If there is up and down movement on the front wheels while the lower control arms are being supported, inspect the upper and lower ball joints for excessive play. These are prone to failure from moisture entry and lack of lubrication. The ball joints should be replaced as needed.
