Brought truck in for service due to hit pulling to the right and seemed to be sitting low. When the dealership removed front wheels it was discovered the both front coil springs had been broken. Both springs were broken diagonal at the base where it sits in the strut. Was told that the springs needed to be replaced in order for a proper allingment to be completed. Further research online shows that this is a very common issue in the Ford F-150. Truck has never been taken off road or driven hard. Truck is taken well care of.

We have always taken our truck to the Ford dealer for regular service. Took it to a 3rd party mechanic to have brakes done and they showed us that both front coil springs were broken, completely severed and had been that way for quite a while evident by rust and corrosion at breaking point. After reading the other complaints on here this seems to be a common defect in this make and model and year. I am doing separate complaints regarding the spark plugs and exhaust manifold issues.

While sitting at rest, the left front coil spring broke at the bottom rung. The engine was not running and the truck was unloaded. I heard a loud snap and the truck shook. No parts or fragments were released and the break was clean and rather even across the body of the spring. The stance of the truck has been altered although no change in drivablility to date (next day).

While my truck was being serviced, it was brought to my attention that I had a broken front passenger side coil spring. Their was a 2 inch piece of coil spring hanging on by the plastic covering of the spring. The piece was corroded, which tells me that it had been broken for some time. I have noticed online that this is not a uncommon occurrence.

While rotating the tires on my 2004 F-150 I noticed the drivers side front coil spring was broken. I then looked at the passenger side and seen that one was broken also. I was broke in the exact same spot as the other one. I have never taken this truck off the road. It only has 75000 miles on it I think these springs should not be broken and there is a problem with them. While looking online I noticed alot of other people with the same problem.

2004/5 Ford f150, 33,000 road miles (never been off road) parked at traffic lights in my truck when the front drivers side coils spring collapsed. Having inspected the failed part, it has not failed in the normal fracture straight through the coil but diagonally through it, surely this must be a manufacturing flaw. So glad I was stationary when it happened.

This vehicle already had a recall #98s18. This obviously didn't fix the problem. The spring came out of the assembly and struck my fuel tank. In my opinion they should have replaced the leaf spring if it was not made correctly and not just put a bandaid on it. They broke even though this was supposed to fix the error. .
