I had a lot of noise from the front right after I replaced the strut due to a leak. Sounds bad. Now that it's summer, I do not hear anymore clunking clacking noise. Now the ride feels soft. When loaded the rear wheels appear to toe in on the top of the wheel... I'm thinking a total strut & shock replacement. Any comments? I'm at 75,000 mi.

pinmonkey001 I just bought my car used from a dealership. I had a 30 day warrantee on it so I'm taking it back this weekend to see if this is covered and if this Bulletin will still be in effect on this car. The car has less than 43,000 miles on it so I'm not sure if the front suspension pieces were ever changed or not.

Odin Hey I just joined this site and came to this section to see about rotors but I saw this thread. This sounds exactly like what my car does. It also creaks when I release the brake pressure. Now I am a complete no knowledge automotive student of 2 weeks. I have 2 weeks worth of knowledge basically. How much and where would I take my car to fix this? 2008 ford focus se coupe, I am not under warranty I don't think.

StacieAS Would the service bulletin still be in affect now even though it came out a while ago? My car has been doing this, but just now figured out what the problem is.

jiggy I bought a 2009 FF coupe SES in Feb.2009 I only have 12,000 miles but for a while now It feels like the front wheels are going to fall off.

I haven't been on here since the purchase but came to look around and I'm glad I did. My car definitely has this symptom...Thanks

What's the warranty 36,000 or five years on this ??

jgentes I'm not sure how to really tell other then getting them swapped out. I saw a TSB for the Focus that talked about the control arms as being one of the possible culprits. It was for me, and I didn't know until I changed them. I also have done my shocks and struts, but the noise you are talking about in my case was the control arms.

I guess I should ask if there is any way to test if the control arm is bad before I replace it?

GO.army.1969 Ya if just going back and forth to work no. But I have a lead foot when it comes to the twisties and this setup with coilovers is like being on train tracks.
