13-14 control arm hydro bushing

So I have read that the 13-14s had a recall over the control arm hydro bushing. Does anyone know of this or had this issue with there stang? I believe that is what Im dealing with in my car. If I go over a speed bump, when coming down it sounds like really my shock or strut is gone! like its hitting metal on metal! also if i go over a semi large speedbump, my front makes a squeaking sound like its struggling to take on the weight.... Im kinda upset do to it being NEW!!!!! Not even 2500 miles on it!!!!! At first I thought it was my brakes but NO WAY!!!

This is going on with previous years as well. It's a TSB, not a recall because it's not a safety issue according to Ford. They say the bushing still does its job, just makes a popping/clunking sound at low speeds over bumps and rough road. I think it's due to the soft rubber they used to make the bushing. If I remember correctly, they just replace the front LCA with another of the same part number, meaning the issue could show up again. I noticed that BMR has some front LCAs being sold on AM now. Might be something to look into if Ford "fix" isn't permanent, I know I'm keeping it in mind. Either way, good luck with the fix. Your dealership should be able to take care of you.
