I've heard allot about this frunt end popping noise. I took delevery on a 2005 GT around the biginning of April and haven't had a single problem with the car. I'd like to know a little bit more about this frunt end popping. My car does make a popping noise when turning a low speeds or even standing still. Sounds almost like a rubber spacer of something is binding. This noise is very faint though and it only happens when the car is hot. If you have the raido on or the blower on speed 2 and up you don't hear it. The build date was some time in the miiddle of March. Do I have the infamous "frunt end popping" issue? Is this thing pretty loud?

Hey pfiandra,
I've been waiting for parts for 8-9-10 weeks now, I forget. Mine was built 1st or 2nd week of March and the noise started like you described. So now order up the parts and join the front end pop club :D :eek: I'll have to find that old song "pop music" I hate that song.

I also have been waiting 5 weeks for the parts to come in. My GT was picked up March 28 and the popping started end of May. Popping is worst when making a slow hard left hand turn, like pulling into a parking spot.

I finally got this TSB work done!

Regarding the TSB that addresses the front end popping noise, I ordered my parts back in mid-April. After some mis-ordering (by my dealer), and several backorders, the work was finally completed this past Monday (7/25); almost (3) months later. The popping is gone!

Like someone mentioned earlier in the thread, order your parts now and do the waiting routine because Ford is really behind the ball on this one with regard to having enough parts.

According to the TSB only cars built before 4/8/05 were effected. All after were produced with the correct strut mount bearing, spring isolators, strut nuts, ect... Got mine back last night no popping. I just wish they had fixed the screw that is sticking through the convertable top!

popping

Parts for my car finally came in after 8 weeks. They originally said two weeks and it would only take couple hours to fix. Now they are saying they would like me to drop it off because it may take up to 6 hours, i am thinking i will have them put mileage on the ticket and an order not to drive more than 2 miles without the owner present. Not sure if they will do it or not but i dont like the idea of leaving my car with them for that long, sounds like joyrides for everyone in the shop. Hate ford service.
