  1. Had right front strut plate replaced at 98,000 miles under warranty. While at rest and turning the steering wheel slightly left/right a clicking or popping sound could be heard. They replaced the right side but I am not so sure the left side may be having the same issue. I can reach under the fender a put my hand on the top of the spring near the plate, turn the steering wheel and feel the spring "jump" which is the noise heard inside. More to follow after some more miles.
  2. Not sure if I'm in the right forum but here goes nothing......I have a 2011 Ford Edge AWD SE that only came with 20k miles during 3 years owndership-at time of purchase drivers front tire was down to the wear bars. They replaced all 4 tires with yokohama directional tires (jerks). I have put about 30k miles on the car since buying and within the first 5k miles I noticed SIGNIFICANT wearing of the front tires. Went in for oil change and they did not rotate my tires so of course they got worse....after 10k they were in rough shape with 'cupping' and more noticeable wear. Tires were rotated at this time. Also had tie rods replaced. They did not see any other noticeable front end issues. After 15k miles the front tires were now even with the rear (which were previously the front). Front end alignment done and was horribly off (BAD). I live on a smooth dirt road and I am not a crazy driver. I treat my car very well and get all routine maintenance done. I continue to have noticeable front end tire wear and have been to 2 different ford dealers that cannot find a front end problem other than tie rods that have been fixed and I get routine alignments. Now my tires after 30k miles have so much wear on them I have a leak in one that requires inflation every 48 hours, (I KNOW, RIGHT?!) Is anyone else having these issues? I have also called corporate with these issues with no headway. I'm losing my mind and a lot of money with replacing tires after 30k.
  3. Our '08 Edge FWD Limited, has a knock in the front suspension. It feels like a stabilizer bushing but they look and and feel ok. It ONLY happens when either the left or right wheel hits a bump or pothole. When I go over a speed bump with BOTH wheels, there is no knock, so the noise is associated with individual wheel movement. I suspected it may be a spring seat but that would make a noise at depression with a wheel movement, left, right, or both wheels. Back to the stabilizer bar bushings. I got under the Edge the other day and tried taking the bolts loose. Tried is the optimum word. No luck. I broke one ratchet wrench and socket (Snapon, if it makes any difference). Interestingly, I cant find these bushings anywhere at any of our local auto parts stores and the Ford dealer says they dont stock them(!). I'm tempted to get a set of 33mm performance bushings and get out my trusty 1/2" breaker and 15mm socket and have at it! Ideas?
