Clunking noise in front suspension

  1. Hey guys, I have a noise in my front end whenever I go over a speedbump or a dip in the road. The struts still seem pretty firm and there is no play anywhere in the suspension. Is this common with the S197's?
  2. Check the swaybar links. They have to be ridiculously tight (89 ft lbs) or they cause clunking.

    Welcome to the Forum! My name is Deysha with Ford Service, and I recommend you have your vehicle diagnosed at your Ford dealer. Your Service Manager is in the best position to look into this for you. He can check into any assistance, Recalls, or Customer Satisfaction Programs that may apply to your vehicle. Let me know the outcome.

    Thank you for the input, jtthrideye!

  5. Thanks guys for the input, I'll check out that TSB and also look at my swaybar links.
