Front suspension noise

My 2014 Mustang has noise (thump kind of thing) that you can here from the front left side of the car. This occurs when you hit a bump, or a speed bump, just going over the curb in the driveway. So I am thinking maybe it has a bad strut or something and take it to the dealer, after all it has 4000 miles on it. They found nothing and acted like I am nuts! I told them that this a knew problem, and they of course test drove it and didn't here a thing. The technician found nothing wrong. I drove it home and when going into the driveway it did the same thing. I got out and had my spouse back it out and re-enter the driveway and sure enough you can here the noise outside of the car. Its not a loud noise in fact if you have music on you don't here it. I am wondering if anyone else has had this problem?

Look up Tsb 11-10-17. It addresses this issue with the front suspension. It was brought up in a thread about a month ago I'll try to find it.

I'm interested. Had lower control arms replaced but still a clunk over speed bumps and driveways. Doesn't squeak anymore when I push up and down on the front end though.

Search "struts going bad" and it'll show up. Sorry I can't figure out how to get a link for the thread. I don't know if cause I'm on the mobile app or the meds are kicking my butt.

Thank you for the feed back, After the second trip to another ford Dealer they found it to be caused by the front end link being loose. So it appears that it came off the assembly line that way. When getting into the car afterwards it was a huge improvement, and it felt completely different through the steering to ride quality!
