I'm pretty sure the camshaft synchronizer would be all i need, plus the tool to remove it but your input would be nice.
The chirp you hear is a classic sign of the cam synchro going bad.
You don't need a new cam, just the 'camshaft synchronizer assembly'.
It"s not hard to replace if you are careful and follow the instructions, but I'd
recommend you get the synchro from Ford (Motorcraft) rather than the
aftermarket Dorman units.
The tool you mentioned is not used to remove the synchro, but to align it
once it's installed.
