I took the survey.

Here are some more observations I did today.

I have a July 27th built SEL Sedan with 16'' alloy wheels.
I dont have the thick spacer. I do have the front clunking noise and its more noticable when I have passagers with me.

Took my car in today for the DCT again and was given a 2013 SE Flex/fuel loaner. This loaner has the additionnal plating and the front suspension is VERY quiet. Before leaving the dealer, I checked another Focus in the showroom, an april 2012 built...no extra plating on this one. The loaner I have is a very enjoyable ride. I will put it tru some real testing as I will use it to go tru my daily gauntlet ride to my office in Montreal. I'll report back tomorow night

Hoping this helps.

Cheers

Aye, I drove a '13 ST with the plates. Sounded solid as a rock, very smooth, and very quiet.

For the record, I installed the ST front suspension on my car (struts, strut mounts, fresh strut bearings), but don't have the reinforced plates on my strut brace. My car sounds horrible right now.
