So I just need to change the Sway Bar end links?

Hi Scott,

Did your dealer get a chace to look at it? Please make an appointment with them at your earliest convenience then PM me your VIN, kilometres, full name, best daytime phone number, and dealer's name. I'll see which options we have to work with.

Got my Mustang back from the dealer yesterday. The rattle is fixed, everything else is also fixed. Dealer did a great job and I am very pleased. There is nothing like getting behind the wheel of a mustang after you have not done it for a while.

Thanks for the update. I have a similar noise and it does not occur on every bump just sometimes. I will have this area looked at.

If you’re experiencing this noise, be sure to bring your vehicles in to your dealer and have them checked out. Please let me know the outcome.


Thank you for the update, mmanqso.

I still have the slight clunking in the rear end, but hesitant to take it to the dealer because they keep saying they can't find anything wrong and they "lube" the muffler hanger..and charge me $50 diagnostic fee. It's happened twice while I've had it in for other service work.

I'm also having the exact same issues since I picked the car up in July of 2012 with only 199.7km. I've had both front control arms replaced which did help reduce the front noise but now I have been to my dealer on numerous occasions for the rear end noise which has also been happening since I picked her up. I eventually duplicated it with my dealer who said they can hear it and are not sure of the cause (which in turn I have told them its the sway bar links, ball joints and maybe even a shock) I have worked for numerous car dealerships(Jaguar, Land Rover, Mitsubishi and Volvo) and currently working at BMW I know very well what to expect from a dealer. They did try tightening down all of the rear and that only made it worse. I do get the rear quarter window glass cracking noise as well. Most frustrating thing is the ford service advisor that was making sure the dealer was looking after me ending up quitting and now I get the run around. *No suspension mods* Only MPT 93 Tune & BBK intake which were installed at 12,000 km. I have the feeling I will have to purchase a set of Coilovers /caster camber plates, Pan Hard Bar, Lower control arm w/ relo brackets, and anti sway bar kit. just not willing to spend the money yet to just fix a problem.

I also purchased the Ford Extended Service Plan.
