I also had a popping noise from my front end (09 SES), going over bumps usually. Took it to the dealer and they actually used the same TSB. They started with the sway bar links, but that didn't work, which I figured anyway because I looked at the front end and couldn't see any issues with anything "visual". Then they proceeded to the next step, replacing the control arms. Oddly enough, this didn't resolve it either. Then the mechanic had an idea and he was right. Here it was a bolt on the rack and pinion, once he tightened the bolt the noise was gone. After and alignment I was good to go. My focus only had about 16,000kms on it when the issue occurred.
