Default RE: 2007 Front Suspension Thunking Noise

I just took delivery of my 07 GT today and I also have the same problem with less than 100 miles. I'm gonna live with it for a little while until I hear of a worthwhile fix. These strut suspensions are fairly simple so the fix can't be that complicated.

Got an 06 GT with 2000 miles on it and have the noise since new, two months ago. So shoud we make a new post, and post on it if you called the hotline on this particular problem? First step, what is the number. Then, I'll set up a tread on this. Shall we!?

Im not sure what the number is. I talked with the Ford rep and the General manager at the dealer. I drove it home after having it there 10 days. I had a loaner (ford 500that) that did not make a sound...got back in mine and that damm noise hit me the minute I hit the first bump in the road.The only way I can get rid of it is to turn up the radio. Go ahead and start it off and maybe we can get something done. I have had a bunch of new and used vehicles over the years and never had this type of problem. I traded a 2002 Ford F-150 Fx4 with 68,000 and did not make a sound. Every time I drive past the dealer I wish I had it back 14 mpg or not.

I've got an 06 V6 Pony and I definitely do NOT hear any such noise. It's got 10,000 miles on it now and I do a lot of driving in it, so I would expect I would have heard it. I know, you'll assume my muffler is drowning the sound out, but I didn't put that on until around 7000 miles, so I doubt it. Now what I DO have is that awful creaking/rattle in the dashboard. Drives me nuts! I can never seem to locate where exactly its coming from either. Minor complaints though with such a fun car to drive!

I have a creek in the dashboard drivers side. If I push on the dash it goes away. I can fix that. I was tapping on the top of the headliner the other day while driving and that makes all kind of noise....but thats only if you tap on it. I have had people in the car that don't notice the front end but others have asked if I have a bad strut.

Same problem here. I have also upgraded the front sway bar and checked my sway bar links often.

Has anyone noticed how the mulit-piece fuse box can flop up and down? Go try it...

Same problem here also. It has done it since the day I got it ('06 GT 2100 miles)

I too noticed the fuse box "flop". I locked it down with a couple of black zip strips. I was hoping that was the noise but it did not solve it.
