I REPLACED THE SHOCKS TWICE, TIRES TWICE NOT REALIZING THERE WAS SUCH A THING AS BODY BUSHINGS/ JUST FOUND OUT YESTERDAY , WAITING TO SEE HOW MUCH THIS WILL COST. FORD USES THE LOWEST QUALITY MATERIALS IN THEIR VEHICLES, I AM SURPRISED AND VERY DISAPPOINTED. SINCERELY, F.C.FERRELL .THE OLD BUSHINGS LITERALLY CRUMBLED UP LIKE DIED UP EARTH.
