LOL.....anyone tried adjusting your hood stops? Perhaps the noise is not suspension related. It is a known issue that the hood stops are the source of this type of front end noise over bumps. I know it sounds crazy. I can't provide you with proof (proprietary thing) but trust me. It's at least worth having someone with some engine or chassis ears compare the noise level between the hood stop areas and the sway bar end links..............
I have checked believe me. This is a deeper type suspension noise felt over crackes and bumpes in the road...or even backing out of the driveway....when the front wheels bounce off the two inch drop at the end of the drive I can hear it....smooth road freeway above 35 40 nothing. I was concinced it was a strut until they replaced them....I have had people say the inner fender wells are a loose fit (they are) but it is not that kind of sound.....
I will be taking my new '07 with 300 miles on it back to the dealership this week for this problem. It has gotten a little worse, first occuring predominantly on the right side but now both sides have the problem. I explained to them there may not be a fix for this, so I'll report back when I find out something.

It would be interesting to see how many had this problem and how many did not. Like I said some that have been in it don't seem to notice it.....I just think it sounds sloppy....like and older car with 100,000 and bad front end parts
Drove 3 GTs before getting mine and never noticed the noise until I got mine home. Sounds like suspension noise at slow speeds only. (40kph and below) Also have a zip tie on the fuse box. I will not take it to the dealer because I was the one who used to fix these things at the dealer until I changed trades. I will look for this noise in the spring when I get the car back out. Being from a dealership I know what some of these places are like when you leave a nice car there.

Please let me know what you find out. After replacing the links and passenger side strut they then hooked it up to a frame anylizer(possibly not the right term) to try to get closer to the problem with no luck. The ford rep drove and did hear it but because there were no service bulletins on it he calimed it was the nature of the beast. I have been around cars for many years and can't believe this is a normal front end noise. As I stated earlier I have a 73 Corvette and at 36 years old does not have any front end noise. Email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you find out what it is
They replaced both struts and no differance....they put the origional back in the drivers side for some reason. I even drove the car the 5th day it was there after the repacement of the struts with no differance
