check your tranny and engine mounts.
they may be bad or going bad and will create that vibration. specially the tranny ones.

SOURCE: Creaking Noise in Front Axel when going over speed bumps/dips in road

My grandfather has a 97 Ford Crown Vic that used to do the same thing. He had the front end greased when he got an oil change and that solved the problem. So thats probably all you need.

I had the same problem. It would squeak kinda bad when I pull in my driveway. My cv boots were good. I found the ball joints were getting wore out, as well as the shocks were over 10 yrs old. I replaced the ball joints and shocks. I know my squeaks stopped, I personally believe it was the shocks that fixed my squeaking.

This type of noise is likely to be a universal joint that is worn out in the drive line. have a shop put it on a lift and inspect the joints.

If it is just making a loud "grinding" or "screaching" noise, is is most likely a bad starter bendix or a torn-up flywheel, or BOTH.

I have a 96 thunderbird that makes a loud whistling sound from air intake


If the noise is like a loud hoot or a wounded moose and you have a 4.6L engine then you need to update the iac intake tube. Ford basic part # 9H308. The turbulence that this tube creates makes you Idle air control resonate resulting in a hoot noise.
