A, X and D plan=reward ::) for working for Ford either directly or indirectly.  Most of the time if you are buying new you will be working off of or at invoice.  The competition between dealers for business is so fierce there are times the dealer will actually LOSE money on a deal if it helps them meet their stair step goals.  Another buying hint, if you are buying and the F&I department tells you there is a "doc" or document fee, tell them to shove off.  It is another way they can hose you for a few hundred bucks.  No state requires a doc fee to be collected.  The dealers south of us in a larger city all charge this fee because they can and site the fact that "everyone else does it".  This little fee helps make up for any loss the dealer might have on a close deal.  It's BS and it's dirty.

I forgot, a couple days ago, Lisle sent out a product update.  They are making
a seal driver for the hub seals on the super duties.  At least it's available from
somebody besides OTC/rotunda now.

Flip you are right that it isn't required by the state. However if a dealer charges one customer for this fee, then they have to charge all customers for the fee. At that point I would tell them fine, you can show a document fee. But now you can knock off from the selling price enough to cover the fee.

I owned a very small used car dealership and never charged the fee. As you say its just another way to hose the customer.

I have a F250 also but with 129000 miles, my truck had a rattle in the right front also. It sounded like a loose shock.  It was a spring hanger bushing that was dry. Sprayed it with some lube and the rattle stopped.
