Seems to have quieted it down some, I'll give it a longer test drive after work.

It's an easy DIY to do yourself, actually; it just requires the removal of the upper cowl cover, wipers, and lower cowl. A few screws, clips, and bolts.

I've sent out a request for the official torque specs from Ford, though, just to compare notes. I torqued the center nut to 60 ft-lbs, and the strut mount bolts to 35.
