My 2010 SEL doesn't ride as well as it used to. Maybe because the steering and suspension parts are all original with 173K miles on them. However it does ride straight, no uneven tire wear, no strange noises, doesn't not sag on one side but the rear seems to sit lower these days. Pushing down on the body above each tire seems to be pretty stiff and it bounces back up HOWEVER......It does sway alot when turning and is real rough and loud over bumps "BANG". I also tow small trailers with it. I am researching what I should replace getting the ride back to a comfortable experience. I am planning on turning it over to my son when he gets his license and want it in the best mechanical condition. After a visual inspection, my thoughts are to replace: -Rear shocks, springs, sway bar links and bushings -Front strut/springs, sway bar links an bushings, upper/lower control arm I've priced all the parts on Rock Auto and realize the total investment I am looking for any advice on: -The best parts -What can to test to make sure I wont need to replace something, say like the springs -what to replace first in what order- rear or front first or all at once? -when to get an alignment Any advice is would be awesome!!
I am experiencing this problem since the day my vehicle got hit from another car on right side of my vehicle, impact came to my vehicle on wheel, fender and passenger side door. (pics attached) Ford Body shop has repaired the door & Fender and replaced the wheel rim, as it has big scratch on it. after the repair work done every morning when i cross first speed-breaker (bump) on my way to office it gives me click sound. I am unable to get from where it is coming (whether suspension, control arm or any other part connected to the front right wheel). This sound come only if vehicle speed is 20km/hr or above. if it cross the speed breaker below this speed then sound wont come. I have notified dealer in this regard, they kept the vehicle for 2days but remain unable to find anything. Need expert opinions.
I have been replacing my front end suspension parts with MOOG replacement parts, I have found the MOOG to be great quality and are exactly the same as the OEM (Motorcraft) parts. The MOOG parts appear to be powder coated not dipped in paint. The cost was also less. The outer Tie rods were heavy quality and exact replacement. The MOOG parts also come with grease fittings which the motorcraft do not. The swaybar links were also of similar quality and appeared to be well constructed. Be carefull of some other brands as they are definately sub par and I sent them back and went with the MOOG. The best prices seemed to be between Oreillys Auto Parts and Summit Racing online.
