That would be a nice and quick fix. I'll try it tonight. Thanks!

I have a 2011 SES that has the "creak/squeak" noise when going over bumps, Taken it in a few times but they "Can't duplicate concern." Anyone know if there is a tsb that includes the 2011 model year?

Don't worry, they will be able to " duplicate " the noise the day after the warranty ends!

I ended up taking my car in for rust proofing a week after posting in here and the noise went away!
I guess whatever it was was dry and needed to be oil sprayed

2008 Focus

Hey guys, I have a 2008 Focus 99,300 Miles (almost to 100,000). I just noticed this post tonight. I have the certified used warranty. But from what I have read here it is only with bumper to bumper that they are fixing this issue? I have noticed this on my car for a while now, when I first start rolling I hear a clunk such as being described. And when I go over bumps I hear a creaking, that sounds like it originates from the rear but I'm not positive on that. Any thoughts?

Thanks

I changed the front factory sway bar links at 40,000 . It happens to all focus. Its a 95.00 fix at The dealer and they will install the same crappy factory parts. For about the same price you can buy superior parts online and install them yourself. The Moog parts feature grease fittings, which should result in them lasting the life of the car All you need is a torque wrench and a good jack. Good luck http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/de...QMOK80066.html
