    My right rear toe link on my 2013 Explorer Interceptor has broken three times running, each time after being replaced by Ford Mechanics. Now they're telling me it's the fault of the Moog bushing. They claim Ford issued a warning about this. Anybody know if and when Ford has issued any kind of a warning about this? The Ford garage wants me to pay a bazillion bucks for towing and repairs when it seems to me their part is defective.

    No maybe they are saying TSB, dont know. Ask them to clarify. Moog parts are not that they used to be. I would stay away from them, I have used lots of them and nothing but problems, reviews on internet reflect that. Moving forward, I would use motorcraft.

    My 10 cents

    Welcome to the Forum Steve.:wave:
    I've recently had the recall done on the rear toe links on my 2017. Are you saying that your issue would have been covered under the Ford replacement warranty if not for the use of the Moog parts? I know that under the factory warranty any failure of a warrantied part that is traced back to the use of a non-Ford part will not be covered.
    I'm not sure what the Poll is supposed to be. Are you asking if any members have had toe links fail/replaced?

    You probably already know this, Ford just issued recall on this same issue. You should get reimbursed for your costs on this. It depends on manufacturing date and where it was built.

    Peter,
    Did Ford replace your parts with heavier duty parts? I have scheduled to have recall completed. Just wondering if getting stronger toe-links.

    I really have no idea. The recall notice says to replace with "new forged toe link".

    One would assume Ford spend an extra .02 per link to prevent from occurring again.
