Suspension RIGHT strut sounds like its out

Whats up guys! So I have a new 2014 Mustang GT/CS and it has about 1000 miles on it. Several days ago, I was going over a speed bump and on my front right side when going over it and coming down just sounded like a clank sound coming straight down, I thought it was my strut not taking the shock or at that, was thinking was the shock absorder or bushings. I took my car to the nearest Ford dealership and they said nothing was wrong, thats how they come so I said BS, show me on a brand new one.... SO THEY DID!!! The Stang had about 15 miles on it, still with plastic over it and when we went to find a speed bump, SURE ENOUGH, it did it!!!!! ONLY on the front right side it does it......

ANYONE HAVE THIS ISSUE??? It seems you have to be going bout 3-5 miles an hour to hear it. Please get back to me!

I've heard something similar a few times I think, but all of my former cars have been 25+ years old so I kind of brushed it off. I plan on replacing all of them with aftermarket parts soon anyway so I don't worry too much.

There is a TSB to replace something on the front suspension, my '13 did the same thing.

Can't remember what it was they replaced but if you go talk to them and explain what is wrong they should fix no questions.

Surprised it wasn't addressed before they built '14's but it's probably just easier to let the dealers fix it than adjust the assembly line...

Here you go


Some 2011-2013 Mustangs may exhibit a grunt/creak/chirp/squeak noise from the front lower control arm hydro bushing. These noises may occur over large vertical bumps like speed bumps, pot holes, rough roads, and driveway approaches.
