Default RE: Front End Noises

I'd like to hear just how the strut could be making such a noise. I think not.... More likely the swaybar bushings as the noise reportedly comes and goes. Further you now know that a cars on two different struts, stock and Koni's are both doing it. And since Tokico and Ford are hooked up, and Tokico makes a lot ofFord OEM stuff (don't know they do on this car, but the housings are identical as far as I can see comparing them), I don't believe that it's a strut issue at all.

Like I said idk if Magaritagirl's noises are the same but it sounds the same-a creaking noise. Regardless, point is the strut still can cause this type of noise b/c the dealer replaced the struts and now there isnt a noise. So unless my dealer lied and replaced something else wihout telling me or the car magically fixed itself while in service the problem and creaking noise (at least in my case) was the struts.

But when the struts are changed, the front end comes apart... including removal of the strut mount from the spring, and reinstallation of it. And let's not remember the noise seems to come and go, without changing struts at all. I'm glad you noise is gone, at least for now... but I don't think it was the struts, and he might well have lubed the mount and bar bushings with silicone when it was apart too.

While the struts were changed out, other things were taken apart to do it, and that in itself can make noises come or go. YMMV.
