Suspension warranty question.

How long is the suspension warranty? Is it under the B2B warranty, powertrain, or a separate warranty. I don't have my actual owners manual(dealer is still screwing around with that), and did a brief check on the online manual, but didn't see anything.

Suspension warranty question.

Didn't come up with anything suspension related. Would it be under the b2b warranty, or powertrain? I think suspension would be under the b2b warranty, and not the powertrain, but I'm not sure.

You do know you can pull PDF versions of your user manual from the ford owners website right?

I already tried that. I didn't look through it thoroughly, but I didn't see anything about suspension, I did see something about axle bearings,I think, which was under powertrain.

Suspension warranty question.

Ok. Let's think this through.

POWER train...

Sooooo

Engine = yes
Trans = yes
Driveshaft = yes
Diff = yes
Rear axles = likely.

Suspension = not that I've ever heard of.

So that sir would be part of the B2B.

And may I ask why you are concerned at this point? Your car is a 13 soooooooooooooooo.....

I figured that it would be the b2b, the axle thing kinda threw me off, well, know I know I only need to wait 2 years 6 months, or 30K more miles.

I'm not sure when the warranty started, because it may have been put into service before I bought it(had 300 already on it.) I just want it to have better handling, and also get some drag springs...

Just do your suspension. If you do it right the first time, all at once, you should be ok. I've never had warranty work done to my suspension on anything I've owned, and even if something needed work there isn't anything overly expensive in there anyway

Depends on what part of the suspension. Parts that should last a good amount of time, (a arms, bushings, cv joints) Ford will replace, if they've been tampered with it will depend on that specific dealer on whether they want to honor some sort of warranty.

Warranty is coverage plus the mileage that's on the odometer at signing. Even if you bought the car with a 1,000 miles.

All parts of the suspension are covered under the warranty. If you lowered the parts of the suspension that are affected may not be covered. Most of the stock suspension is junk that you want to replace anyways. The only thing under there that you should be concerned with not breaking is the electronic power steering rack, due to cost. BTW those are junk too. Ford replaced mine at 25k miles in a 2011 V6 that I traded in.

If you broke something then now you have to upgrade to stronger after market parts due to necessity. Having Ford fix it will be a waste of time because it will just break again in the future (explain it like that to the woman).

My thought process on that subject.
