Shame you're on the wrong side of the continent; I'd be willing to meet, otherwise.
Pft, not like it's a big distance or anything.

Well, all the parts are sold. That didn't take long.

Thanks for all the compliments, comrades. I'm officially no longer a Focus owner.

While it sucks to see another Focus owner trading out, I can completely understand and relate. Thanks for using all of your time and cash to try and resolve the clunk. Hopefully you hang around the forum a bit with your V-Dub...

I'll be around, and if you need me, you've got my number.

I'd take a serious look at the pinch welds to the strut towers, though. I would not be surprised in the slightest if that was where the noise is coming from. I'll be keeping tabs on what happens, if Ford does ever do anything.

Now that you mention it I can see it also. Unfortunately for me you have the photographic advantage and those awesome LED tails...

I definitely agree with your taste in mods
