#1 - Driveline Center Support Bearing problem of the 2007 Ford F-150
The vehicle is a 2007 Ford F-150. On the above listed date, while driving in rush hour traffic in a busy metropolitan city my drive shaft center support bearing allowed the drive shaft of my 2007 Ford f150 to slip backwards completely detaching from the transmission. Luckily, my speed at that time was only 10-15mph. When calling the for dealership to inquire about replacing the part or advise the sales person was only interested in selling me an entire drive shaft and adamantly stated the part in which I was searching was not obtainable in no possible way. After searching for the exact part on Ford's parts website I did locate the individual part allowable for order online. My main concern at this time is there was no regard for the tremendous safety hazard of this particular device or piece of equipment, moreover there was more concern with obtaining a larger sell. After reading online I have found other issues with this exact device or parts pertaining to it's function but there does not seem to be any recall or investigation regarding these matters. I am only addressing this issue because of the definite safety risks that are at hand and to advise to other owners of this year make and model to have your vehicle inspected for this possible safety hazard. Also, to the Ford motor company, being a massive entity in the vehicle development and sales industry I was appalled to learn of no existing investigations in this matter. Please, for the safety of the families driving your product alone with my family as well, please take an initiative in further investigating this matter. Thank you, satisfied but dissatisfied customer. This issue happened on 08/16/13.

The car involved is a 2006 Ford F-150. I had to replace all of the gears and the inside and outside bearings and seals in the rear end - on a truck that had 87,000 miles. Every dealership I've spoken to has talked about the cheap bearings in the front and rear end on these Ford F-150's. 18,000 miles ago I had to fix the front end. This issue happened on 01/27/2012.

#4 - Driveline Center Support Bearing problem of the 2004 Ford F-150
The vehicle involved is a 2004 Ford f150. The VIN of this F-150 is 1FTVX14564_. I had a clunking sound under my 2004 f150 4x4. Pulled off the road and found out that the center support bearing on my drive shaft had worn out. Luckily I found out before getting on the highway for a long trip or the shaft would have eventually eaten through and caused major harm to the truck and possibly ourselves and any others involved from an accident. I cannot find any parts to replace the center support bearing (csb). All after market parts suppliers cannot find a replacement part that is even made. The Ford dealership wants to sell me the entire drive shaft for $700 when the csb is only a $20-30 part - if Ford would supply/make the part. This is not the first part I have had a very difficult time finding for this truck!. It was 11/15/2007 when this driveline center support bearing issue occurred.
