I have access to a shop with tooling so I just ordered the replacement bearings...
I'll be happy to document this service experience on record for you; please PM me your VIN, mileage, contact info, and dealer city/state.

Hooray for a loaner car; you can drive it like crazy! Please let me know how it goes in the operating room.

How long have you been waiting for the parts? Please PM me your VIN, mileage, phone number, and dealer info; I'll loop in your Customer Service Manager.

You get two thumbs-up from me! Logging 800+ miles earns you this badge: http://social.ford.com/grab-a-badge/road+trip/. Did you fill up once or twice?
