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.

Do you guys know if the 2013 car year has the same front end problem as the 2012?
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.

My 2013 Titanium HB also has front clunking noise in slow speeds. It was build in June 2012.
Hi abbashtz,

This is something I'd like to look into for you; have you been to your dealer to get the noise checked out?

Please PM me your VIN, full name, odometer reading, best daytime phone #, and dealer's name. This information will help me evaluate what's the next step. :)

Meanwhile, I encourage you to make an appointment with your dealer if you haven't done so already.

Yes, I have been to two dealers. Both have replaced various parts (bearing, strut, sway bar) but issue isn't solved. I've emailed the service manager last week (after the latest service) but didn't hear back.

I've PM'd you my info.
