Except the noise is only at lower speeds over small bumps (uneven pavement or sewer covers), and from what I've seen, only at constant speeds. Doesn't seem to make the noise while braking, which would put different stresses on the suspension. I don't expect or want my GT to ride like a Lexus, but we don't have to be engineers to know a defect when we hear one.

I just picked up my car ('06 GT w/ 18" wheels) from the dealer. I took it in with 550 miles for a fuel fill problem (not the same as I've read about in other threads) and front suspension noise when going over bumps. They replaced both upper strut mounts based on what they said was a TSB for the issue. The noise is pretty much gone at this point. You may want to have your dealer look for a TSB for this.

Try shaking the engine. I noticed that when I shut off the car I hear a rattling sound. So I turned on the engine with the hood open and noticed that when the engine shuts of it shakes. The engine mounts have a bell cover on them (engine mounts are now designed with oil in them) this cover must be banging on a stop.

My 06 mustang gt makes a squealing sound on acceleration when I put the pedal half way down, like a belt slipping. The car was manufactured mid March. I was told that they changed the style of the manifold at the time of my production, and that could be the cause. Did anyone haer of this?

Default Check your nutts

I had a noise that just wouldn't go away. I had replaced the front and rear sway bars and made the mistake of reusing the old nutts. If for some reason someone has lossened and retightened the front sway bar nutts then they need to be replaced. Have the tech tighten them and go out for a ride. It only takes a few seconds to tighten them and you will know if that is your problem within a short ride.

Worth a try

I've had the same on my 06 and took it into the dealer - they agreed to hearing the sound and took a new one off the floor - it made the same noise. They recorded on my record that the sound is common to the racing suspension and not due to any defects. After 4000 miles I've now resolved to live with it!

Ford's full of it. Since they all do it, then they're all defective, and more the reason for Ford to figure out what the problem is. And what racing suspension? There are many cars with sporty suspension that don't make this noise. Learning to live with problem is unacceptable.

At first I thought this was my imagination, but the noise is much less when someone is sitting in the passenger seat. Has anyone else noticed this? Makes it somewhat difficult to test drive for the noise with you and the mechanic in the car. But it makes sense though that additional weight could effect the noise.

I have an 06 Mustang V6 with 5000 miles on it. I have this same clunking noise, primarily from the right front side. I took it to the dealer and they replaced the right front strut. This made no difference, clunk is still there. The service advisor wrote on the paper work that "some clunk noise is normal". This is crap. I've had cars with 180,000 miles on them that don't make front end noises. After reading this forum, I believe it's a design problem. When watching Ford Mustang commercials they should have a warning regarding clunking noises coming from front ends, like pharmicutical companys warn of side affects from presciption drugs.

Hey time,
I had my '05 clunk-pop fixed after 1200 miles. I think every member here has had a problem of some sort w/ their Ford Mustang. My front end noise is gone, but all the clunks make up for it. My car does like this frigid 10-20 temp we've been stuck w/ lately.

If you had yours fixed, let these guys know what they did to fix it. They're puzzled and the dealers don't seem to know what to do about the problem. Fill us in!

Check to make sure the bolts holding the front sway bar brackets, the two in the middle that hold the sway bar to the frame, are all very tight. This solved a cluncking issue I recently had.

+1... Vertical sway bar link. Mine came loose a couple of times.

Not me. That was done by the tech who fixed it. My oasis is on the bottom shelf next to the fridge.
