OK i stopped by my dealer and talked to them about what it was.... they may try to tell you that it is the splash guard in the well but it isn't that.... it is the Lower control arm that is doing it. that what fixed my popping... now i don't know if they will fix it with an Aftermarket suspension or not... i am still tryin to figure that out.

My 09 Focus Coupe has an odd ticking/rattling noise but it seems to be coming from the back of the car, to my ear at least. Could this have something to do with it?

while moving or idling?

if moving/idling no...... you could have your exhaust a little loose or heat shield or something like that.....

I just got my 09 back from the dealer yesterday for a rattle/squeak. They said there was a TSB for the e-brake cable (didn't get the #). But, it fixed it, no more rattle/squeak, even on speed bumps.

Shouldn't have any problem unless your dealer is a u-know-what. I have had some warranty work done recently with a few mods on my 09' the dealer didn't say anything.

My dealer has never had an issue with the suspension and chassis mods on my '09. On Tuesday, they did the endlink TSB upgrade and resurfaced my front brake rotors under warranty for nada.

^^Having the text of the TSB with you always helps if your service advisor plays/is ignorant.

Great Post
My 2008 is experiencing similar problems I have a squeak in the front end when going over bumps and with heaver bumps i can feel a metallic rub and along with the sound
the sound like a cheap bed spring and ride quality is bad it has been swaying and the front end has been vibration.
I have been to the dealer and they couldn't find anything wrong and since i have 56k on it would not been covered under warranty.
this week i plan to bring it to local specialist what I'm leaning is the upper strut mount/bearing
wonder if anybody else had similar issues .

I feel like I heard this same noise the other night. I spent about 20 minutes driving around and trying to listen to it. I was just a popping noise as I drove down the road, almost sounded like the exhaust constantly backfiring quietly. Then I noticed it would get louder as I would brake so I thought maybe it was the brakes. I then tried swerving and it kinda made it louder so then I thought the suspension. Finally I gave up and came home for the night. I haven't heard it since, nor did I ever hear it before. So maybe it was just the weather for me. :/ Thanks for finding this though! (Even though it was a year or two ago when you found it.) I am going to keep listening and take this to the dealer if I hear it again. Only got 32,500 on my 09 SE Coupe. :D

if its a TSB it should be covered regardless. thats why it is a service bulletin... my right side is still doing it but i have AM springs on there.. so i am up the creek without a paddle.

Yes I was out of the 36k warranty too so no free repair for me but it's no big deal. I never really noticed the clunk noise anyways

i still thought since it was one of their issues they would still fix it especially being a tsb where they know a problem is.

Nope, a TSB is not covered under warranty. It's only a "heads-up", not a recall. I read a post/thread which discussed a TSB. I believe it was whynotthinkwhynot who gave the description, who is a reputable source from what I have seen/read.

My 09 has a squeaking noise coming from the rear while going over bumps anyone have this issue?
Mine was doing that it was the rear sway bar put some grease on the 2 bushings and it was gone. Hope that helps
