About F250 Front Axle
Babies may be cute as they wobble around learning how to walk, but a wobbling Ford is neither cute nor safe. This is one of the earliest signs it is time to replace your F-250 front axle. Look for wobbling at lower speeds that escalates into all-over vibration at higher speeds. As damage to the axle worsens, so does the shaking. A bent axle could be the culprit, and as the wheels wobble, brake problems may follow due to brake pad misalignment caused by the shaking. Brake problems coupled with a wobbly vehicle are a sure sign that it is time to replace the front axle. Brakes may also offer a visual clue as to an axle issue; look for a brake drum coated in oil, the result of a leaking brake seal. Perform a visible check on the axle itself by removing the wheels and brake hardware and looking for damage such as cracks or bending. You can find a wide variety of F-250 front axles and replacement parts on eBay to keep your truck running as it should.
