Crawl up under the front and look at the front plate of the a/c clutch. If any of the 3 rubber shock absorbers are destroyed or gone, there is your noise. Common ailment. Ford used to carry that part alone for about $20 but I'd bet by cracky that they have 'unitized' it to make you buy the entire clutch for quite a bit more money.
