Default Thunking Noise

I have been chasing this problem in my car for two years and finally found it. Unbelievable, but it was the sway bar bushings. The bushings are solid (They don't have the slit to wrap around the bar like many bushings do). Just take the cap off the bushing. You'll see the tear in the bushing. When you put them on, they'll have to be slid on from the sway bar link end. GOOD LUCK... HKarl

I had replaced the struts/springs/strut mount as well as the lower control arms a few months ago on our 2006 GT convertible. A thunking noise recently appeared from the right front, so I replaced the sway bar links and tie rod ends.

The front end rides quietly now. I also checked the toe in with a string, and reset the right side a bit to match up with the left side.

Drives perfectly now.

Default 2005 to 2007 Mustang front end clunk

I bought a 2006 Mustang GT in 2015 with low km's. I noticed a clunk/ lumbering sound on small bumps ( mainly in the right front). It really surprised me that it could have this problem with only 47,000 km on it. Apparently it is very common on the 2005 to 2007 Mustangs. I believed it to be the upper strut mount. I replaced it with one from the dealer part number AD1044. The same noise was there. After more research and coming across a Ford bulletin, the only way to fix it is to put on a strut mount for a 2008 Mustang. The part number is AD1062. The car feels like new. Hopefully this helps out those who have been chasing this issue for some time.

Default Front suspension thinking noise

I finally found the problem with the thinking noise on my '07 GT. It was the front sway bar bushings. You can't see the wear because of the design, but when I took the caps off the bushings, extreme wear was easily seen. Always sounded like strut mounts. Even after replacing struts and mounts. Hope this helps someone.
