Getting there. I can get it to do it outside the car from pushing on it (side to side). It doesn't take much. It almost has the sound of a metal panel popping in and out. I took a video and can't see any components moving though it isn't too detaled. I'm going to have to take it in somewhere and have them check it on a lift. Thoughts?

found it. Sway bar link. The bushings look pretty good an tight.


Noticed some noisy plastic too, the oil service shield, but that wasn't the one I was hearing.

If the car is stock you might as well get oem parts and not bother with aftermarket end links that need to be adjusted
If you plan to keep the sway bar you might as well take it out while you're there and check/regrease the bushings. Mine were stuck/fixed and caused a harsh ride.

But i did lower the car and put eibach sway bar and SR performance end links

Whatever endlinks you get make sure there is no preload on them when you're tightening them, some nuts tend to get loose/cause noises bc of this.
If you do get adjustables put the car on flat ground and adjust/place the endlinks by hand so they go smoothly on the sway bar and strut. Put all nuts snug and lift the car. Then Lift the lower control arm a bit so the strut is compressed and there is no load on the endlink. Bolt everything up (nylock nuts would be ideal)

Rockauto has the Motorcraft MEF201 for $31.89 (I haven't yet checked Ford), I assume that's each. How do the Moog ones compare? The popular one there is the K80899 for $22.79 and has a grease fitting

Can't go wrong with moog and it looks more heavy duty
