Make sure your sway bar end links are good. One of mine had a torn boot, and was loose and making a knocking nose on rough pavement.

Most likely lower control arm bushings (rear). To confirm, shoot some WD-40 or similar lubricant into all four of the LCA bushings. That should make the squeak go away temporarily. Replacements...

Agree with V8 VOL - probably the alternator. Don't wait to replace it, because it will eventually leave you stranded. I barely made it home on battery power when mine died.

I replaced mine with Ford OEM rotors some time ago (07 GT). Not much more expensive than aftermarket, and better quality. I'm at 70K and only one replacement, but don't remember when.

Insurance

It won't be chargable as an accident that will increase your rates, but it will be covered as a collision - deductable applies. At least that's how my ins company (USAA) handles something like that.

You can get a factory kit from http://www.oem-auto-accessory.com/. it's a bit of a job to install but worth the effort. I did that on my 07 GT vert when new.
