Trade it in if it is paid for because your front end is so far out of wake there is no return! You will spend more money on it trieing to figure it out than it is probly worth. 37000 is preaty low miles for that year of truck and you are haveing that many problems all ready? I have a 2005 mitsabichie with 98000 on it and have never had a problem like that. My brother inlaw has a 2004 F250 with 37000 on it and has never had a problem his is a F250 4 door super cab 4 Wheel drive

Plus he tacks his off road sometimes rides like a lumber truck but it runs great and drives nice other than the ride it is a nice truck. Something is really messed up in your front end should never have to replace all the ball joints with that low of miles on any vehical truck or car

There was only one recall for the 2008 F150 and has nothing to do with ball joints. Matter of fact it is only 213 trucks that were recalled not by Ford, but by Roush, an aftermarket company that does conversions to Propane or natural gas fuel. That is rare for you to have so many problems with the ball joints....the Ford F series has been the best selling vehicle for 17 years running ans best selling pickup for 37 years running, so they must be doing something right.

Some problem replaced 5 ball joints 08 F150 with 60,000 miles never plowed never pulled or pushed anything very easy on the truck also have a spring goal window switch heater switch rear end gears finally I just got rid of it and got to BMW I was going to get I Mustang but I will never ever in recommend no one ever buys from Ford again

The dealer also try to deny me under warranty and said nothing was wrong with my ball joints till I show them the feeling spection sticker the guy at the gas station showed me just how loose and dangerous the ball joint was I understand profit but when you put that over people safety no one should ever buy from Ford

Ford tried telling me that the ball joint length because it is in a sealed component that to me is a crock of crap what is my blinker fluid low 2 they also tried telling me that I didn't drive it enough does that even make sense
