    So I took the truck to get an oil change this morning and while there the dealer recommended a differentual flush. I had never done it so I figured it was about time and decided to let them do it. After the flush, however, I feel the a lot of grinding or rubbing while turning, especially to the left. Is this normal after a flush? Do I need to give the fluid time to run its course through the gears again?

    Just checked your gallery. It sounds like the idiots didn't put additive in the oil. Take it back and tell them to fix it.
