slight rattling noise in front of new Focus

Now I'm starting to get annoyed. I have a new 2010 SES Focus. Previously I asked about the pinging noise when accelerating under light load, I am convinced it IS pinging now, no a KNOCK that will trip the sensor.

For quite a while now when driving down a rough or bumpy road I hear a rattling noise coming from what sounds like the engine side of the fire wall. Closest thing I can compare the sound too is a loose hood prop rod like i've heard before but not the case here. Maybe the car heat shield? Anybody else experience this? About got a list togethor long enough to take it to the dealer, just don't have the time to be without my car because I use it for work.

I suspect the front sway bar endlinks. There is a TSB for the 2008-2010 models. Here is the thread http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=230440

I don't think the noise I am referring to is suspension related. Although I did notice I started getting a creak/pop as described in that thread from my right side when going over speed bumps. Only 10k miles so I guess I'll take it in in basis of the tsb and hope they can find both noises.

The noise i am referring to in this thread is more like something is loose and rattling from vibration when on a rough road. Sound like something light or thin metal rattling.
