2013 Mustang V6 Base, Creaking Sound from shocks.....

Car has about 2000 miles. No mods, other than 18's off a GT. I have been noticing that the front shocks make a creaking sound going over speedbumps or during slower, bumpy driving. Planning on taking it to the dealer to have them check it out soon. Just wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this and what the culprit was? Could just need a little WD-40 or something.

Have a look at this thread. My 2012 V6 does it to. It will be going in the shop next week to be examined if I can find the time.

Funny that this issue started in 2011 and looks like it will never be resolved.
my 2012 had both sides replaces @ 2K and 5K. now at 20K same noise, especially when hot outside and going over speed bumps slow or driveways and road dips. Frustrating to say the least considering I am paying for this car and have these annoying issues!

Did they replace the lower control arms or the struts?

Has anyone ever had an issue with the rear suspension. With 6000 miles on it it sounds a bit "loose" if the road is rough or going over railroad crossings and such like?

Hello members,

I'd like to escalate this to the Customer Service Manager assigned to your area. Please make an appointment with your dealer and PM me with your VIN, dealer, full name, mileage, and best daytime number so I can help.

Thanks for the post. I'd rather not get corporate involved unless there's an issue at the dealership. Don't want to cause any problems for them.

Good to see they fixed this in the 2013 models... This is whats keeping me from upgrading to a GT, that and the gas milage.

Deysha, I brought my vehicle in 2x to my dealer and both times they said "we don't have time" or "we don't have the appropriate staff" to take care of my creaking. I'm not too sure what an appointment means to Ford, but apparently it's not the same as what it means to me. And this is after 2 full days of leaving my car there. Not sure what they are good for. The worse part is their condescending attitudes when I tell them the front LCA's are creaking, as if they are going to disprove me. Not that they even put effort for into proving me wrong, they never even move my car from their driveway to the shop.

Nothing says piece of **** car like a creaking suspension.

I understand, replica. Let me know if you need me.

This is the perfect time to escalate this then, FutureSound. Make another appointment with them and send me your info so I can help.

My 2012 has done this from day one. But I don't have the means to leave my only car at the dealer for a couple days. And they don't have loaners.

Wow! While I'm glad I'm not the only one, sucks to hear so many people have this problem. I'm going to be setting up an appointment shortly. I'll post the results afterwards. Thanks for all your feedback.

I get a knocking sound leaving my driveway that I've dealt with since about 3000 miles. I added sway bars thinking it would help but all I did was give the dealer shmucks something to blame.

I think the biggest difference between the domestic crowd and imports is that if you buy a domestic, you pretty much spend most of your time and $$ fixing the weaknesses, and replacing OEM parts as opposed to imports that are over engineered, it becomes paninfully obvious that ford's engineering team only focuses on the bottom line instead of the execution of a proper car. Don't get me started on the ineptitude of the dealership network. Ford should be ashamed.

I just crossed 2k miles on my 2013 V6. I don't hear any noises but I do feel the odd feedback in the pedals, almost like the connecting rods are being bumped by something. Good to know I'm not crazy. Doesn't happen all the time, once or twice a week.

Plan on letting the dealership look at it at 5k unless it gets more frequent or I start hearing the noise everyone's reporting.

I'll be sure to email Deysha with the appointment info.
