Is this vibration in the wheel or more in the seat?
Honestly in both. I would say most of it occurs in the wheel because that's where the problem is coming from but it shakes enough that I can feel it through the seats

It's a joke, it started in the 40's. And its used on newbies to the automotive scene

I had one of those, it was in the tool box with my Cable Stretcher.
Are we really talking about a part of a Ranger here ????

The OP was a good laugh...

The turbo encapulator on 04+ ranger's is located under the bed of the truck next to the muffler bearing service port #34. You cant miss it port #34 is the green one you have to apply force with the TOP of your head to remove the turbo encapulator. After you have removed the turbo encapulator you will need a 180 degree spanner wrench and a good pair of wire stretchers to adjust it properly or blinker fluid loss will occur. Installation of the turbo encapulator is the reverse of removal. Becarfull not to damage the muffler bearing or a rip in the time space continuum may occur.

Correct. Another way to remove the turbo encabulator is to drop the pan on the flux capacitor which sits right next to it. This allows the TE to slide right out. This is a good time to change the flux capacitor fluid.

I bought my Ranger because I thought they were cheap... And when I thought I had nothing new to learn about it, I found about this Flux capacitor fluid.... Do they sell it in Autozone?

No the flux capacitor fluid can only be found at the ford dealer and it costs around 250 per qt you need 3.5 to refill.

Well back to the OP
Corbin , when you installed the new rotors , did you degrease them with a solvent before putting them on ?
