Thats what I did when I asked them and they said they were non serviceable bushings. It was a suppose I knew Fords didn't have the zerk fittings on their bushings. I can figure it out I just need to take the time to check.

When I picked my car up this morning from the dealership, there was no more of that mind-boggling noise!! Thank God!! Also, there was no charge for the service (: This made my day! Thanks Ford!!(: (: (: Now to just pray that the noise doesn't come back anytime soon, but I'm going to stap optimistic.

Thanks Everyone for great advice!

katkrazy2007 Weeelllll..... I took my '08 SES to the Ford place in my town this morning about the squeaking when going over bumps and they said they coudn't find anything. They said that they greased and lubed everything because over time bushings and what-not dry out and will rub and make noises.

But what I forgot to mention to them before I left this morning was that you can make it make the sound by just having the car parked and bouncing back end up and down (because they said they couldn't get it to make the noise by driving it, which means they didn't take it over any bumps). The guy said he was gonna go back out and try it that way after he called and I told them that. I really pray that it just needed some greasing ): I just want all this figured out and fixed.

I am greasing it up some more this weekend. Give it a try.
Great info, folks. Thanks for helping out katkrazy2007!

Ohhh, that makes more sense now. We will have to check it out and see if we can find anything before I take it to the dealership to have it looked it. Thanks for the input everyone. I am a very desperate person right now! I love my beautiful focus and I just want it to not be squeaky haha.
