I guess a crack developed. As for having Ford weight it, I think it is going to be hard to do. Not sure I want to off load everything leaving at the camp ground and then reloading everything. If I was home good idea but on a trip?

Well at least you know what it is now, but now the battle begins as to who pays for body damage. Good Luck

Forums are pretty anonymous so I can ask the BIG question .
Why would you "off load everything leaving at the camp ground and then reloading everything" unless your overloaded?
Like I said "anonymous" so if you are overloaded Ford shouldn't be able to trace this back to you.

Like the goodol tuned 6.0 blown head gaskets, Ford fixed thousands under warranty, "Just reinstall the factory software and take it in,,,FREE."

tilap,
Why not get the unit weighted before you unload and after. Even if you just get the front and rear axle weights. If you weight it and it is under the axle and spring ratings you have some proof to show Ford that it is good. If you weight it and you are over you know what could have caused the problem. The units are weighted when build and you should have the yellow tag telling you what room you have left for our stuff.

I find this whole situation very ODD that a person has a Fender (Several Inches Down and Rubbing a Front Tire) would (Drive It )! Then drive it to a FORD DEALER and they (Confirm that Your Front Spring is BROKEN) and they let you (DRIVE AWAY)! Youroo!! Two things come to mind here, (SAFTEY and STUPIDY)!

Rgmiller32 the vehicle was weighted before I loaded it for the trip and after loading and everything was below max recommended limit. I still got the official scale receipts with all the details of the weight. I should have add some details like to get the vehicle to Ford I got it towed and had to empty it as as possible. Then got it Towed back to the campground. It will get towed back to Ford.

Sounds like a good way to prevent damage any further. I certainly understand what you are doing and up against getting parts. Best of luck getting service completed and not totally ruining your time away on vacation.

It would have been (Easy/Nicer) to Tell us that you had it towed (Back and Forth) to the Ford Dealer instead of your Post # (18/26/29/and31) My Post # 8 said Tow It! Youroo!! Remember YOU ask for Help!

Suspension?

If the unit is NOT overloaded and Ford is fixing broken spring under warranty, they should repair the fender damage as progressive damage. IF they won't fix the fender, I would think that they shouldn't replace the spring asy under warranty. ( Not all Ford dealers have a body shop, may need to get repaired at a body shop you choose and present the repair receipts to your local Ford dealer for warranty reimbursement. Might even contact Ford Customer Service. )
