Has anyone else noticed front sway bar noise? I'm hearing a pop very infrequently, like when swinging into a driveway to reverse back & park. Haven't experienced anything whith normal driving- bumps, turns, or straight into driveways/ lots all seems to be fine. From doing a little research this seems to be common with the Focus. Just get the Moog's and call it good or is there more to it?

I've got it - something rattling in the pass rear too. I'm going to take a look tonight.

moogs are excellent. cheap and relatively easy to maintain. just add grease to it every so often. I'm not too sure about when but i do it every time i take it in for maintenance. buy them from rockauto.com they are a great company to buy from

Still lasting strong, I actually think it raised the suspension. I have over 150k on it now still as strong as ever, now if I can get rid of the rough idle I'd be happy.
It raised the car from stock ride height?

,^^^

I would be very curious as well. My car has 68,000 on it and I put 46,000 on it on the freeway only, I also can't stand the bottoming out. I just got back from a 2500mi camping trip and bottoming out at 85mph is scary as ! I don't care if it doesn't lower as I can more easily afford the kit in stages and I have to stop bottoming out...

I installed my FRPP kit 2 weeks ago. My front struts are making clunk noises while going over bumps at lower speeds. Anyone have this issue?

I thought it was my end links son I replaced those last week. It helped but strut noise is still there
