Default bad roaring from the front end

Hey guys got a question about front ends. I have this roaring or grinding sound coming from the front of the truck. It only appears when the wheel is straight and the truck is in motion. A few weeks back i was hauling some storm debris and the truck started severely shaking for a couple hundred feet and then calmed down. Any ideas????

I'm going to make a guess, if its a 4x4, it may be the IWE solenoid. Someone with that gen of truck (and more time than I have right now) should be able to explain it and maybe show more about it.

does it sound like "Ice in a blender?" It should occur between 30-40 mph coasting (if its the same as mine)

There are two main causes of this: 2007 Fords had a recall because the IWE selenoid was missing a shroud - causing water from the hood to infiltrate the electronics and cause shorts. 2008 models have the shroud already.
The second cause is a vacuum leak somewhere between the hubs and the solenoid - causing intermittent engagement of the 4wd

Also - read this thread for more info: http://www.fordtruckclub.net/forum/s...ead.php?t=4028

I think this is nismo's Truck 2WD

http://www.fordtruckclub.net/forum/g...ment.php?id=49

dont drive anywhere until you check the following, you could do more harm and end up stuck somewhere and having to $pend more $$$

Jack up the front end and see if you have any movement in the wheel up and down could be a wheel bearing

remove wheel, spin hub and check for brake noise / wear

if you do need to remove the hub for repairs get back with us

crawl underneath (jack stands) and check the steering componets "I doubt this is the cause"
