Hi, I need help please with my 2011 Ranger (the last model of the old shape).

I've recently had a 2 inch lift on my PX Ranger. Now at about 18 kph there is a vibration (it's like driving over a wooden bridge) he calls it leaf spring shutter. I won't mention who done the lift as yet cause they're trying to address the problem. They did tell me that it is a common problem
Have a 2011 PX.
A few weeks after warranty ran out the dash developed a rattle. I took it to ford they couldn't work it out. Don't think they looked to far into it to be honest as its out of warranty. It keeps getting worse and worse if i go down a bumpy road the rattle turns into a...

It now ranges constantly from say 9.8 to...
Went to the local Dealer this week to see about one of my Remotes which has been on the blink for some time and has now completely stopped working. Replacement of the battery has made no difference, and it will not re-program.
My Ranger is a 2010 PK, which was sold with a 5-year Warranty at the...

We picked up our little ute the other day. I have a few small things to fix on the old girl. The most pressing issue at the moment is the steering wheel.

Just putting it out there again to see if any more are having suspension issues like leaning to one side, not sitting level, wheel arch height, spring sagging, I know I am not the only one out there being told by ford that this is within specs.
I had the dreaded clicking today from my Aircon/heater control settings so I visited my local dealer today to get it checked out.
It was immediately booked in for next Monday as it has become a Recall issue for the HAVC.
I was told Ford has just released the Recall from today so I imagine all...
Brought a new Wildtrak manual at the end of May 2014. First day of delivery I noted what felt like a misfire / jerking on acceleration after cruising at a light throttle setting. This is also apparent while going around a "round-about" and going to accelerate off at your exit.
