FYI, this is a necropost. There is a much simpler and less expensive way to get rid of the front end clunk now. The fix was originally discovered by forum member Dysan911 and Ford finally released a TSB to address the issue:
TSB 13-9-9 CLUNK/RATTLE NOISE FROM FRONT END DURING PARKING MANEUVERS AND/OR OVER ROUGH SURFACES AT LOW SPEEDS BETWEEN 8-32 KM/H (5-20 MPH)

Paid 470.00 for 4 Koni for a 2002 SVTF that I owned. Not a bad increase in price 1 decade later......
