Matt89 I get a loud metal on metal clank sound when I have my wheel fully cranked to one side while moving over bumps or a slight slope. Is this the same as the pop/click this thread is addressing?

My car is at the dealership right now having the front sway bar links replaced, cost will be ~$200. Car has about 55k on it, out of warranty.

Do you guys really think they should cover this for free?

eotsis1 I guess I'm late to the party.
I'd been having this 'clunk' for some time now but put it on the back burner since riding my motorcycle most of the year. After noticing that one of my tires had some cupping, figured it might be a good idea to replace the front struts. Did that but still had the 'clunk' and usually just noticeable when backing out of the drive or just starting to drive first thing in the morning. Not that noticeable after I got moving.
I took the time one day to remove the driver side LCA and couldn't find anything loose. Kept riding the motorcycle til recently.
While I was considering replacing the lower control arms, decided to start cheap and replace the sway bar end links. Voila, clunk is gone. The Fomoco units still don't seem bad but they are very light weight compared to the MOOG 'problem solver' units. Seemed a bit pricey too at $33/ea. but, problem solved.
Then I saw this thread. DOH

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.

12pohlmrob Wow that really explains why my 2010 focus has always been popping! Thanks!

Matt89 My car has this too, does it need to be taken care of or is it fine?
