Squeaks and creaks heard while driving over bumps and turning can be caused be a couple common sources and should be carefully diagnosed. Possible weld issues on the lower control arms can cause the noise concerns and require repair kits for the lower control arms from Ford. A jounce bumper (bump stop) rubbing against dry strut plate can cause an abrasion noise from the strut area. In this case the strut assembly should be disassembled to lubricate the jounce bumper and then reinstalled.

    My care started doing this a few months ago. Mostly in the colder weather but comes and goes ant different intensities. Need to go and have it fixed but going thru a divorce and money is tight!! Sounds like FORD should add this to the list of recall items!!!! Absolutely LAST time I buy a FORD and am going to trade it in if I can!!!

    Been to two different ford dealerships the first one was a complete joke as they had no idea at all and didnt want to try. The second more reputable dealership replaced upper and lower swing ball joints. No problme until it just turned cold again now its back at it. My wife is scared to drive it and we just got it paid off, seems like they had a sensor installed to start having problems right after it was paid for.

    i have recently started hearing a creaking noise coming from my car when i make a right or left turn. Is the only solution to take it to the dealership, about how much will this cost me?

    I have a 2008 fusion with the same issue - squeaks and creaks over bumps and on turns. It appears to be worse when it is cold. I brought it to our local mechanic and they indicated it was the struts. It is not a safety issue, so I did not have them repaired. Maybe this should be a recall?

    I have a 2007 Ford Fusion SEL. The creaking/clacking noise happens when I make a left or right turn, and comes primarily from the front end, with right turns & noise on passenger's side being the loudest. Today, however, the noise has become worse. It's to the point where I actually pulled over and looked under my car to see if something was caught. I noticed a pattern in the sound: when I coast through a turn, there's no noise. If I give my car gas while turning, it grinds. My car has 130,000 miles on it now and this problem is at it's worst. The noise started when I first purchased the car around 110,000 miles, but the vibration/grinding is new as of today.
    I took the car to my mechanic, and he told me there's a hole in my front axle near the passenger's side tire boot that has leaked all the grease out. The estimate I got was about $350, with a 2 hour fix-it window. Will update when the car is repaired. I hope the noises & symptoms I've described can give others a better insight as to what's wrong with their vehicle. Good luck!

    not fixed yet but is driving me insane. No dealership will take me serious. One says it might be the power steering unit. I think it is pathetis that so many of us have the same issue and there really needs to be a recall.

    I get the same noise when turning right and on bumps. Two places said they didn't hear it until I pointed it out to them. One finally decided it might be the ball joint. I'm going for a third opinion soon and will tell them about the comments here.
