Hi All,

If you haven't noticed yet, I'm far from a gear head and haven't turned many wrenches in my life. Therefore, I appreciate your patience with all my questions.

Anyways - I'm at about 1,400 miles on my Tremor (just got him last week and had to drive down the entire east coast to get him home). I notice that when I am in park with the brake engaged and then shifting into Drive or Reverse, as I let my foot off the brake I get quite a bit of groaning. If the vehicle was older and had old brakes I would probably take it to the shop given how consistent it is, but I'm wondering if this is perhaps normal during new super duty break-in?

That sounds fairly normal to me. Just make sure you check the hub lockers on the fronts. They should both be set to auto. I remember someone one here having sounds and odd feeling and it ended up being one was set to auto, and the other to manual. ???
