No I don't . But I did have the front control arms replaced under warrantee by Ford for a similar Issue. I'm wondering if it could be the same for the rear .

I just replaced my rear sway bar cuz the bushing were going out. If it's still under warranty take it in. A ford tech told me the 2011 to 12s sway bar bushing like to go out.

That's probably what it is . If I where u I would look into getting the front lower control arms done before you have an issue like I did .

Best thing to find out if it's your rear sway bar is to disconnect it and drive it down a bumpy road. It's not that hard.

When you learned that your sway bar was the issue did u find that it was loose ? Because when I checked my sway bar it seemed to be secured correctly . Maybe it could be that the bushing needs more movement than I can do by grabbing it. It also seems worse when it's really cold out . Which I guess the rubber bushings do get effected by the cold .

Ya when I grabbed it and shock it. It berly moved. So I took it off and it was the problem. If it wasn't the problem I would've put it back on. It's a simple install/take off.
