    I saw a post that mentioned you had some info on replacing the pinion seal properly.
    Last year I took my 2000 Excursion 4x4 to the dealer and had the pinion seal replaced. Now the rear end is making noise. The dealer says they do not need to replace the crush sleeve when changing the pinion seal. They want to charge me $2300 to replace the ring and pinion now. I took it to the dealer assuming it would be done properly. Do you have any info from Ford or another reliable source that states the crush sleeve has to be replaced? Thanks

    I checked my account settings, but didn't find a method to delete my account. While I still have Ford diesel p/u, I have not posted to the site in years. In light of the recent security breach, please delete the account.

    Thank you,

    Good morning
    I hope I am not imposing by messaging you but don't know where else to turn. Have a question regarding my transmission. I own a 2001 f250 7.3 CCLB 4wd 4r100 trans. I run noble 1 syn oil and gauges. Just bought new toy hauler and towed in the mountains for the first time. OD is off. Was wondering on down hill slopes if it ok to pull the trany into 2 or 1 for more braking. Up hill was fine and temps never over 200. Plan on installing a TQ lock switch but would really like your input on this.
    Thanks, Tony "salt life"

    My Sierra Blanca in the sig pic was a great pickup for 11.5 years. I sold it a coupla years ago. I drove a hand-me-down 2003 F-150 SuperCrew 4.6L 2V for a while, but it was unacceptable for towing more than a rowboat. Replacement is a 2012 F-150 EcoBoost SuperCrew Lariat that tows my 5,000-pound TT like a dream.
