I wonder if this is a similar situation to the lower control arm difference on different wheel configurations. I recently read in another thread that some Foci with smaller wheels have a "steel" lower control arm and others have alloy. I think the larger "alloy wheel" models have the alloy control arm.
I do not have the clunks.
Here's my March 2011 built SEL Hatch with premium package (17" mesh alloy wheels)
Nay, I have the SE Sport package, which gave me the alloy lower suspension arms, amongst other things.
Oddly enough, though, the ST uses steel lower control arms.
Now that you've shown me that, nothing makes any sense. Why would your strut tower brace be reinforced like that on such an early build? I wish an engineer from Ford could enlighten us as to the truth behind this whole mess.
