Hiya
Just recently got an annoying creaking noise coming from the front suspension,its worse
when i am turning a corner.
I have done the steering rack bolt thing(got them tightened,washer on the right bolt and anti seize on the bolts).
Pedders tightened up the straddle bolts today,its lessened the noise but its still there.
Can someone please help with this?What else can be done?
thanks

I had a huge creaking noise in an ED and after chasing all the things u have i found a small piece of gravel wedged in the rubber where the sway bar is bolted to the chassis from some spray pave repair on a road i had driven on. It was real load to the point of embarrasing. Everytime the bar rotated it squeeked. Good luck with ya hunt.

BA/BF had trouble with front spring sqeak and so Ford brought an anti squeak part to solve the problem. AFAIK it goes toward the top of the spring. Part number BA 5R310 A $8.75 each.
