As far as I can see they did you a favor even looking into those problems.
Guys, we ALL pay for stuff like this. Warranty costs go up because of guys like this. When owners screw up their trucks, violate the warranty and then cry when the problems can't be fixed for free, it annoys me and it should annoy you.
I just went through this with my Truck but I have very little KM's on it 6,800km when it went in but the rear end stuff started at 1,200Km's (Still stock) & the Trans shifting hard and lagging
I also Posted a thread called: (check it out)
Warranty Work Performed my Dealer and did an awesome job!!
I have 3"' Pro Comp leveling kit, BFG 34.1" tires(per tire only 5lbs heavier then stock 31.9"), K&N series 63 Kit and all my work was Warranty from TSB's it started off in here F150 Forum with Ashley & Bianca, then they got me Jacqueline Ford Service CA, who was from Florida who was in contact with my Dealer's Service manager till the truck went in and work performed & my service Rep Christine was 100% on the ball getting it all done with the right Tech's
They road tested it 40 some Km's
Rear End oil slinger was changed and all new bolts and lock nuts, TSB
Trans was 2 TSB for hard shifting and lag in reverse
Trans Cold start Lundging and Jerking going from 1-2-3 gears TSB fixed it
Latch broke off slider, they replaced the whole slider
3rd Brake light fills up with water, replaced new Brake light
Back door stopper broke off, new one replaced
Driver's Mirror fell out, they took it out and popped back in no charge
Retorqued wheels after roation, topped air to 40 p.s.i
only charged 40.00 for car rentle they had truck for 4 days in out fast like bunny.....
This truck is Better then it was when New (stock), shifts faster smoother, no lag, no clicking or popping, it goes off the line like my Supercharged GTP Grand Prix. It feel's tight and solid, goes like scared bunny......
Maybe I just have a Great Dealer and Service Rep, but they have been the best right from buying this truck, best deal, gave there cost on all accessories I put on through the Custom shops they use.
Just saying......there are thousands of these trucks needing TSB's mind you mine is 2012 and most TSB's are 2012-2013, but there is a flaw there somewhere with the parts in the rear-end.
If you can't do this to a truck then something wrong with there design...my older trucks with actual lift kits and 38 " tires never had these problems....and we drove these trucks hard
Here is My Modified Street truck
