I got my car back the other day for this issue and after the initial inspection (I had to take the car back for a weekend trip) he said it was the struts, that parts were ordered, and it was something Ford was aware of/said there was a bulletin out. (I'll look at the sheet again for a number or more specific reference)

That said, 2 days after going back in and getting it fixed, it sounds great now. But ... as always, we'll see how it goes over time since this wasn't an issues for the first couple of months anyways!
