If you are driving a 2001 Ford F-150, or if you are planning to purchase one, then it is important that you review reported Steering Gear Box (other Than Rack And Pinion) problems and defects. Total reports: 2.
Loose Steering, Second (replacement) Steering Gear. The Original Steering Gear Was Noisy And The Dealer Replaced It With A Used, Rebuilt Unit At 3,264 Miles. Current (used) Gear Has Excessive Free Play, The Vehicle Wanders And Is Difficult To Control On The Highway. ford Refuses To Supply The Dealer With A New Gear. The Dealer Refuses To Replace Or Adjust The Loose Gear. I Feel The Safety Of The Vehicle Is In Question With The Used Gear In It Due To Lack Of Traceability Of The Gear In Case Of A Recall Or Safety Campaign. *ak
