    Have there been any reports of strut bearing issues with the GT500?
    The reason I ask is that the GT500 comes from the factory with both the A-Arm brace and the strut tower brace along with different front suspension components, but GT owners who swapped in GT500 strut mounts still report the popping noises when going over bumps. My 07 GT makes a hydraulic "squishing" noise when the front end travels over a speed bump at 5 mph.

    1,200 miles on my Dad's 07 GT500 no issues. I do find it funny how you have that weird "ssshhhhhh" noise when letting the clutch out though. All the other GT500's at Mustang Alley this year did this too.

    I had no problems with the stock stuff for the 2000 miles it was on the car.
