On the 94-04s though it's really not that dangerous because the front sprints are nowhere nearly as compressed.
Done this a few times. It's always fun.
BTW You probably just have normal surface rust on your rearend. There is usually nothing you can do about it but clean it. It happens on all new vehicles here in Louisiana
. Humidity is a killer. (I work at a dealer)

Dealerships .... we call 'em stealerships. Here's how you may be able to fix it.
I have spent some time at my local Ford dealership and have made friends with some of the techs. Guess what? Some of these guys do work on the side at their homes at a fraction of the dealership rate. Check 'em out. You may find the same thing.
Most people don't understand pricing, overhead, training, or even how dealerships operate for most parts. I've been on both sides of the industry (aftermarket shop and dealerships) and while it took me a while to adjust and understand some of the things at the dealership, it makes perfect sense. Although you have to be carefull of techs and advisor charging obscene hourly rates for. Sounds like they quoted you for 3 hours @ 100.00 an hour. I would bet Ford's catalog has a different labor time listed.
