Slowed To Shoulder To Examine Tire, Wheel Etc. No Noticeable Problem. Vehicle Was Drivable And Shortly After Developed A Grinding Noise In The Front End. Detailed Inspection Revealed A Driver Side Front Coil Spring Failure, Complete Shear At Second Coil From The Bottom Of The Spring. Response From ford Was Tough Luck.
