I had to INSIST that the dealer install the CAC deflector on my truck, regardless of no codes or not being able to replicate the shudder in a rainstorm. Just drove through solid day of rain in Texas again and no problems.

Hi, good for you making the dealer do the TSB on your truck. When I was working at a Ford dealer we found TSBs and recalls that were area specific; In other words a car in Michigan could have a vent line freeze and effect drivability. The same car in California would never have this problem. So only cars registered in cold parts of the country would get the notice, and repair.

My 2012 F-150 Super Crew EB Lariat with 6.5' bed an HD tow package is still going perfectly with zero stutter problems after 20k miles. Absolutely love this truck.

I do have one question though. I live in Colorado and I find that going down hill after going over a pass, I find that I experience some shuttering while braking. Not engine related, but I feel it in the front wheels and brake pedal. I can only assume this is due to the brakes heating up, but this happens even when not towing so I'm wondering if I have brake issues? I also notice that the brakes always squeak when the truck has been sitting outside for a day for the first minute or so of driving. Likely brake dust - but why every time and only after a day?

Thoughts?

Shudder felt in the steering wheel and brake pedal is most likely caused by warped and or badly rusted front brake rotors. Warping may have been caused by overheating.

Brake noise/slight pulsation after sitting, do the google on "lot rot". The rotor would have a light coating of rust everywhere but the area covered by the pads. We normally did a road test on any lot car that was being demo'd, usually it would go away after a few aggressive stops.

FWIW...I always buy the BEST quality brake pads,(aftermarket), for our TV, never scrimp on safety.

On My 2012 F150 EchoBoost, I had those same symptoms after some trailering in the mountains . As it only happens under hard braking or when braking down hill while towing, it was hard to convince the dealer that there was a problem. I finally convinced them to check the rotors for warp which they found on my L front only and even though the brake pads were still good at 25K miles. I had the rotor turned and new pads installed in the front.
I've since had no problems after towing another 6800 miles.

What is your max payload (see sticker inside drivers door)?

Warped front disk drums are not uncommon on Ford trucks due to over heating. Since these are not covered under warranty, I replaced the ones on my F-250 with aftermarket performance units.

I read several theories for brake shudder.

1. Warped rotors due to overheating.
2. Warped rotors due to overtightened lug nuts.
3. Molecular bonding of brake pad material to rotor due to rapid stopping and a "baking" effect. Seems only apply to ceramic pads.

My Expedition shudders/pulses slightly. I've replaced the rotors twice. Fixes the problem for awhile, but it always returns. I live in a hilly area and go to Tahoe a lot in the mountains so heavy braking is normal.

Warped rotors and the resulting pulsating brake peddle are caused by too much heat. And the excessive heat is caused by the single piston caliper sticking to one side, making the pads drag, which is usually caused by corrosion or no lubricant where the calipers mount.

When you replace the rotors, lubricate the mounts for the calipers with anti-seize compound, and they won't warp again for a much longer time. It's best to re-lubricate the caliper mounts every time you rotate the tires.

On the GM vehicles the same thing happens after the rubber "O" rings in the mounts become too hard from heat and age.

Hi, Ford will warranty the brakes if under one year and under 12,000 miles. [whichever comes first] And only one time. After that you are on your own.

I put these on my Navigator (Expedition ) last month after years of replacing warped rotors. So far I've been very impressed with their performance.
