I have a 2011 SES that has the "creak/squeak" noise when going over bumps, Taken it in a few times but they "Can't duplicate concern." Anyone know if there is a tsb that includes the 2011 model year?

Don't worry, they will be able to " duplicate " the noise the day after the warranty ends!

I ended up taking my car in for rust proofing a week after posting in here and the noise went away!
I guess whatever it was was dry and needed to be oil sprayed

2008 Focus

Hey guys, I have a 2008 Focus 99,300 Miles (almost to 100,000). I just noticed this post tonight. I have the certified used warranty. But from what I have read here it is only with bumper to bumper that they are fixing this issue? I have noticed this on my car for a while now, when I first start rolling I hear a clunk such as being described. And when I go over bumps I hear a creaking, that sounds like it originates from the rear but I'm not positive on that. Any thoughts?

Thanks

I changed the front factory sway bar links at 40,000 . It happens to all focus. Its a 95.00 fix at The dealer and they will install the same crappy factory parts.[thumbd] For about the same price you can buy superior parts online and install them yourself. The Moog parts feature grease fittings, which should result in them lasting the life of the car[thumb] All you need is a torque wrench and a good jack. Good luck [cheers]http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/details/QQFordQQFocusQQMoogQQSway_Bar_LinkQQ20002009QQMOK80066.html

My 2011 has had this noise since day one, its going to the dealer here soon. The car has 13,000 miles, so I'm guessing I'm screwed since tires, struts, alignment, and anything related to the suspension is a 12,000 mile warranty according to the service writer.

Funny enough about this, I made a tweet to Ford about having my car in for this issue multiple times, with the dealer finding nothing each time, not expecting much of anything to happen. Long story short, I'm now in contact with the regional customer service manager at Ford corporate and a dealer is looking at my car until the problem is corrected. Rental car included!

Have you tried your control arms?

I used to have the exact same sounds. Did my left and right control arms, problem solved. Have you tried doing the control arms yet?

Nope, haven't looked into that yet but if I replace them I am going to get dom's control arms if they're not too expensive..... Wonder how much they cost?

I got mine for $545. The front LCA's are $500 for the set with the rear brackets. Dom also sell's the poly bushings for another $45 installed.

Also got the rear LCA's for $375. with poly bushings.

Oh well at that price I think I will stick with factory. I am sure Dom's are quality but for what I am using my car for it wouldn't be worth the extra $$.
