aside from the strut tower plates, what other differences are there besides the cv/axle assembly for '12 and '13? just looking systematically...

the fact that it is temperature related (grease in the CV?) and occurs on bumps like a driveway (axle?), it seems plausible. it's just a $200+ part. unless ford can explain why the axles were updated...
