Question Answered: 

Same thing happened on my '06. There's an ABS "tone" ring, aka sensor wheel, at each wheel located on the hub end of each halfshaft. Mine failed on the front passenger side and both front rings are easy to see just by taking a peek with a flashlight. I saw mine was cracked right away and it spun free on the hub. Definitely a DIY repair for $15.00 or so at your local parts store. Dealer probably wants a couple hundred bucks and would more than likely try to sell you a halfshaft as well. Just replacing the shaft would be easier and more profitable for the dealer. Some helpful web videos available to help you out. Naturally the problem could be something else but it appears this failure is common on this vehicle. The aftermarket part will more than likely outlive the vehicle. (Go figure.........I have a Chrysler with almost a quarter million miles on it and NEVER had this happen. Yea Ford!!)
