this was doing it on my 08 left side, took it in and they fixed it after i took a rep for a drive and let them listen to waht it was doing, well it started doing it on my right side BEFORE i installed my drop, now i am afraid to take it in and have them do it on the right side because of the suspension... anyone know if they would do it after the suspension?
only if your lug pattern is the same. i had to re look up sine i noticed you were from the UK that the focus is different.
so if your lug pattern on the focus is a 5x114 and hte transits are the 5X114 then yes. i would talk with a local tire shop and find out ezactly your specs..... or do a little looing around on the internet
Anyone who has done the rear disc swap on their 08+ please chime in. I would like to do this on my 09. from what I understand you have to modify some things. I posted a thread on this, but I figured I'd ask in here also. Any pics or tips would be great!!!
Has anyone found out about the lowering springs and if they would cover it,
had the noise, left and right turning of the wheel when stopped..
I have changed to a upgraded sway bar and my sway bar end links, upgraded
Still have the noise, is all that is left is the tie rod end links right..[scratch]
I stoped at the dealership today, and asked if theyve had people come in with problem with their suspension. He said that alot of people have come in and its their Tie Rod Ends.
So i bought the Front End Links, and the Tie Rod Ends. Ill try the End Links first since their easier.
Picked up the end links today
Went to put them on and the nut wouldn't go on. Come to find out the the "new" end links have fine threads while the "old" ones have course threads.
My car was made 05/08 and have to buy the new nuts only a dollar each
Just a heads up
Edit: both parts have 5543-38438 stamped on them but "old" have AA and the "new" have AB engraved right by the numbers Posted via FF Mobile
Sad that we have to buy aftermarket to get any quality. I'm just going to keep ramming it down Ford's throat and make them fix it over and over and then I'll get MOOGs when the warranty is up. Thanks for the info.
At 46k i was outside of the new car waranty so i could not have the TSB done with the Basecare i bought with it. I had alot of wheel noise and i thought after replacing my tires it would go away but it didn't. The sound was actually my drivers side wheel bearing going out, i took it into the dealership and got my rental. They originally diagnosed the wheel bearing but tore up the axle getting it out and replaced that but in the notes they listed a popping sound which i don't think i have ever heard driving it and listed replacing 4 nuts and 2 sway bar end links on the work order.
Car drives like new now, no noise and tight steering.
Put SVT brakes on my ZX5 Zetec about a month ago. Everything was great! Then ABS light came on while on highway. Turns out my front left ABS sensor cable wore on tire (clip was broken to hold away from tire and I neglected to ziptie). Just replaced with a new sensor. Tried unhooking...
So I have a 2009 SE manual coupe, 149k mi on the OEM suspension. Factory front and rear sway bars (21/20mm F/R, respectively). I have always thought this car was really soft, it dives when I brake at almost any speed, squats under acceleration in all gears, and wallows...
2003 ZX3...was a California car...no visible rust on body...minimal underneath. Was driving away from house and about the 3rd stop...no brakes to speak of.
Haven't gotten into it much yet...but it looks like the brake line going to the rear brakes has rusted thru. Strangely enough it is in a...
Hi everyone, recently I had an issue with my 2012 focus with the dct. Under mild acceleration up a hill the car stopped accelerating and held rpms like the transmission slipped. After letting off the gas and repressing the gas everything was working again. Cue 50 miles later and my wife...
