That's a great idea. I'm hearing the same noises. It's almost like an old lifted trucks springs creaking. Strut and/or motor mounts seem reasonable suspects. Cant you guys who have had this problem fixed somehow scan your work orders to this thread?
It would be a good thing to have in hand when I visit the stealer next.

Hi guys. I have the same issue with my Focus. For those who had the engine mount replaced, do you know which one it was? I had some of the suspension components replaced but the low speed noise is still there. The dealer ordered one mount ( the one under the tranission I believe.)

I get the same sound. And now it seems that many others are experiencing the same.
I will keep and eye on this post, bookmark and decide whether or not to take it back to the dealer. I get a low level clunk when I drive over bumps.

I have the same sound on my SEL. I took it into the dealer and they had it a week. They replaced the strut and the sound is still there! Are these mechanics deaf? I have to take it back in soon.

same here. strut bearings, springs and 2 bolts replaced and the sound and vibration is still there. I really think it is a control arm.
