I took it upon myself to disconnect the front sway bar end links and take it for a ride. Well, I wish I could say that made the noise go away, but it didn't. The noise is still present even with the front end links disconnected, so that leads me to rule them out as a possible issue. Anybody else try anything different? I recall someone saying that the coolant expansion tank is quite flimsy and and is only retained by one clip. I took a look at mine and I agree it is flimsy but it is not moving around.
Well for the do-it yourselfer's. I think we should at least take advantage of some of the info Ford has provided us. My Service rep said with the help of those electronic ears the sound seems to indicate the top area of the struts. I'm pretty sure if the coolant tank was flopping around that Ford would have picked up on that one by now. Does anyone have an exploded view of our strut assembly?
