MKIII Front end Clunk/knock (TI, SE, etc.) Parts.

Hey guys I recently upgraded my suspension and so far after over 1000 Miles no clunk. Time will only tell if the problem is totally fixed. This may not totally fix everyone's clunk, but it may. Some of these parts came from Zillion's shot at it.

The parts I replaced are

Front Upper Strut brace - Installed 2013 ST Brace - #DV6Z*16A200*A
Front Upper Strut Mount - 2013 ST Mounts (x2) - #CV6Z*18183*B
Front Upper Strut Bearing - (updated TSB part) (x2) - #DV6Z*18198*A
Front Upper Strut mount Bolts - 2013 ST - (X6) #W710962*S440 (pack of 4)
Front Upper Strut Nut - 2013 ST - (x2) (shows 2 possible#'s) #W700212S442 ; W700212S3091
Front Struts - 2013 Focus ST. CV6Z-18124-R & CV6Z-18124-Q
Front Strut bounce stops - 2013 ST - (x2) - #BV6Z*3020*A
Front strut upper cover (accordian) - 2013 ST - (x2) - #CV6Z*18A047*A
Front Knuckle/pinch Bolts - 2012 Focus SE. (pack of 4) #W715490S442
Front Strut Rubber spring mount (x2) - (on the strut where the spring sits) 2013 ST - #CV6Z*5793*A
Front End Link Nut - (x2) 2012 SE #W520113S442

Also some of the part may now have updated with new #'s, since these were purchased

RDC has nothing to gain financially with sharing this information. we are just trying to help the MK3 community. As stated below, Springs are not required, it is just what we did with our vehicle.

Aftermarket V-Maxx Lowering Springs -35mm drop (but you should be able to use stock or any aftermarket spring)

And so far NO CLUNK... but only time will tell.
I will keep you updated.

If you need Part Numbers i can research them up and post them here.

Idk exactly, but the number of '13 owners complaining about the issue does appear (online) to be significantly less. Obviously, that is only my observation.

As for the pricing above, ensure that those whom are needing OEM parts contact Village or Tousley Ford as they offer better pricing and shipping than retail.
