SOURCE: my 2007 ml350 brake light
Mine kept telling me both left and right brake lights needed replacing and I noticed that on one of the bulb socket contacts that touch the metal plates on the right brake light, the plastic behind it was melted creating a crevice therefore not making good contact. I added aluminum foil behind the contact (both circled in red in the pic) and the plastic and walla, saved 50 bucks worth of parts ;-). Fixing the right brake light fixed the left one too so tackle the right one first.

In my opinion you have already checked and cured the most common problem zones. In my opinion take it to a car electrician and let him find out the problem. May be the wiring is faulty.

1 - are you SURE theyre the right bulbs! - if theyre too bright they can blow the fuse, if theyre the wrong type of bulb they will blow the fuse..
best get the bulbs direct from ford, they are always in stock, so are the proper fuses.
2 - theres a center brakelight isnt there? check this bulb too for proper wattage and size/shape
Other than that maybe the wiring in the boot is damaged and shorting?? -----
Leave feedback good or bad.

Check the Amps on your Fusebox for your brake light if the correct amp measurement is installed for the break lights then consider using a larger bulb or a bulb that can handle more voltage. most likely incorrect voltage is going to the bulb this is normally fixed by adjust the fuse amp amount to be lower or higher or changing the bulb voltage size
