ISSUE Some 2007-2008 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX vehicles may exhibit a drift/pull concern that occurs even though the tire pressures and wheel alignment are within specifications, and the concern is not corrected by rotating the front tires left to right. ACTION Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition. SERVICE PROCEDURE Verify that drift/pull is not being caused by concerns listed in Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 204-00 drift/pull diagnostics. If normal drift/pull WSM diagnostics/procedures do not resolve the concern then refer to the following service steps. For a Right Drift/Pull 1. Inspect the left strut upper plate to verify which direction the arrow is pointing. (Figure 1) NOTE IF THE NOTCH IS VISIBLE IN THE ACCESS HOLE IN THE STRUT TOWER, THE PLATE HAS ALREADY BEEN ROTATED A POSITIVE 0.5 DEGREE. 2. If the arrow is pointing inboard as seen through the access hole in Figure 1, no rotation is necessary (positive 0.5 degree camber already there). Continue with Step 4. 3. If the arrow is pointing outboard, increase positive camber approximately 0.5 degrees on the left front wheel by rotating the upper strut plate 180 degrees. Refer to WSM, Section 204-00, Camber Adjustment – Front. NOTE DISCONNECT THE FRONT STABILIZER BAR LINK AT THE LOWER CONTROL ARM SO THAT ENOUGH CLEARANCE CAN BE OBTAINED TO ROTATE THE UPPER STRUT MOUNT. REPLACE THE STABILIZER BAR LINK NUT ON REASSEMBLY.
