Re: vehicle jerks when slowing down to a stop.

If it turns out to be your rotors? don't waste you money on cheap crap from china spend the extra
cash and go for Motorcraft. I did mine a well worth it.

Re: Ford Freestyle Original Tire Brand ?

05 AWD SEL

I need to decide if I want to switch to Continental or stick with the Cooper CS3 tires that I have had for two years need to replace them by the end of the year.

Just concerned about the ride of the Continental tire ride on the hard side.

Re: Upgrading Struts Replacement Brand

I took the plunge replaced my original struts after 125,000 decided on Motorcraft as the best choice nice smooth ride feels like a new car once again .

Re: 2005 Freestyle adding auto driving lights?

I recently upgraded my factory lights to LED, I highly recommend these they are also DOT Approved not some crap from China.

Re: Steering wheel shakes while braking

I had the same issue a while back with warped rotors decided on replacing them with coated Motorcraft rotors, they cost a hell of a lot more but in the long run will out last the cheap
crap from China.

Re: Upgrading Struts Replacement Brand

I took the plunge and went with Motorcraft Struts after doing some research found that the KYB offer
a harder ride the Motorcraft is a softer ride in this case softer is for me a better choice and closer
to the original ride the Freestyle was designed to have .

Re: dash lights

Does anyone know exactly how many bulbs in total the cluster has and is it worth it replacing them before they burn out.


I'm having a shop repair my cluster that's having speedo issues thought it might be a good time to do it.


Your thoughts.

Thanks
