06-23-4 DRIVE-AWAY SHUDDER OR VIBRATION

Publication Date: November 3, 2006

FORD: 1999-2007 F-Super Duty


This article supersedes TSB 05-17-6 to update the vehicle model years.

ISSUE:
Some 1999-2007 F-Super Duty vehicles may exhibit excessive drive-away shudder or vibration, under moderate to heavy acceleration from a stop. This may be due to driveline angle.

ACTION:
Shim the center carrier bracket downward to correct the condition. Refer to the following Service Procedure.

SERVICE PROCEDURE

When shimming the center carrier bracket, a maximum of three (3) 1/4" shims may be used (EOTZ-4A209-A). When refastening the carrier bracket use bolt (56564-S2). A 7/16 x 14 grade 5 bolt may be substituted providing that it extends at least three (3) threads past the nut. Use Motorcraft® Threadlock 262, and torque bolts to 46 lb-ft (62 N-m).

NOTE: IF THE VEHICLE IS NORMALLY LOADED, ROAD TESTS WILL NEED TO BE PERFORMED WITH THE VEHICLE LOADED.



Before beginning the repair, road test the vehicle to gain a feel for the harshness of the shudder/vibration.
Install one (1) shim, (DO NOT use threadlock on the bolts at this point), re-road test vehicle.
If condition is corrected, apply threadlock and torque bolts as directed above.
If condition is not corrected, re-perform step 2 (to a maximum of three (3) shims) and reevaluate vehicle.
NOTE: IF THE CONDITION IS STILL NOT CORRECTED AFTER INSTALLING A MAXIMUM OF THREE (3) SHIMS, REFER TO WORKSHOP MANUAL SECTION 205-00 FOR FURTHER DIAGNOSTICS.

I was at the dealership today, and priced out 1 of the shims...$70.00 plus tax.:roflmao:

It is a 1/4" thick piece of steel, with 2 7/16" holes in it, about 11/2"-2" wide, and about 8" long.

The parts guy traced it onto a piece of paper for me...:Thumbup:

Yeah...I'm making my own...:

Thanks for the info on this problem. I had found the tsb on another site but it didnt give the info as to what the cure was to the problem. I never had the truck at the dealer for the fix when it was under warrant because i had 8 inches of lift on it. Now the truck is back to stock. I bought a piece of 1/4 thick steel at lowes and made three shims with it and installed them between the carrier bearing and the mount for it. I found that i fixed the acceleration shudder but there was a constant vibration between 1 and 20 mph. I have since installed some small pieces of flat steel between the shims and the carrier rubber to compress the rubber that the bearing sits in. This fixed the problem. Now I think my truck has no vibrations atleast related to the drive shaft anyways.

does anyone know what the stock angles are supposed to be?? front to the carrier bearring and from the carrier bearing to the pinion??

BTW the DR carrier bearing shim kit is much cheaper than what Ford is charging and comes with all the bolts and shims you could need.

Heres some more advice take your factory tranny mount and huck it in garbage , then go and buy 7.3 tranny mount its beafier and more rubber, this alone will correct alot of vibration.

I dont know for sure the angles that they want the drive shaft at but i have a friend with a cc sb and the both sections of the two piece shaft apear to be pretty much in line. His truck has no vibration or shudder. Once i shimmed my drive shaft the two sections seem to be in line with each other (at the same angle). I have not confirmed this with a angle gauge though.

DR is Donahoe Racing.... talk with DC (DC Customs) or Jesse (Farmboy Fabrications) on here. I just wanted you to see what you got with thier kit for roughly $52, much better than Ford and multiple shim widths so you can set it up perfect.

DR Part# EDG-3-37 Carrier Bearing Kit

http://www.donahoeracing.com/access_...php?accessID=5

There is also another option from OUO alot more expensive and won't help if you aren't lifted, but it will put that carrier bearing where ever you need it to be on multiple axis. Diablo Offroad sells thier kit.
