If you do these yourself, please post up a procedure if you don't mind. I just had back surgery yesterday so I won't be able to do mine for a while, but it looks like I'll probably have a local shop do them for me.

Thanks bro.
The absolute only thing I ordered out of that TSB is the AD1094 bearings at a cost of $12.97 apiece. I will gladly make a how-to thread, though it won't be available until next weekend. If my service dept calls me back then I will attempt to do a drug-deal to get the correct torque specs.

Sounds like they like smoking things anyway, maybe you should have tried that the first time!

Car is going in Tuesday morning to get fixed. They are going to give me a car for the day, too. I thought that was a nice gesture seeing as I didn't ask for one, but I'll take it!

Still waiting for them to call telling me the parts are in. I did drive one of the dealerships fleet vehicles that was a Focus while mine was getting looked at. It had DRL and no clunking noise.

That's what I'm curious to see, if they give me a Focus for the day so I can compare it...

I just put 800+ miles on this weekend that included some bad city roads...and still clunk-free. I could get used to this.

Well, for anyone looking to do their own repair, the strut bearings are on backorder with an ETA of 9/15.

Just an FYI.
