06 ford, someone messed up.

A lady i have known for a long time bought a 2006 f250 cc SWD new from the lot in 06. She has always had the same dealer to the maint. NObody else ever touched it.

Well ok, besides the trucks drives side door paint falling off(not rusting) she went in for new brakes a week ago(same dealer). To make a long story short the calipers on the trucks front end are not For the truck. The dealer spent all day with "big" ford people to try and find out what they belong to and how it happened. It rolled off the factory floor like that..

Did they ever figure out what the calipers where meant for? And what are they doing for her now?

I'd love to see a picture of these calipers.

It's also interesting that the paint "fell" off the door. That sounds like there was some transport repair between the plant and the dealer lot. So it might have not have "rolled off the floor like that".
