I suspect it's the bushings for the front stabilizer bar. Need silicone grease or replacing.This assumes 4x2, not 4x4. #3 is the bushing.
Could also be upper arm with ball joint. These are lubed for life, not greaseable. But you could spray WD40 to see if it stops temporarily. see # 1 in 2nd illustration.

Expedition creaks from front end


It's a Ford- they all do it over time; I've owned Ford's all my life and they still make the same sound today that they did back in '64.[LOL]

I had a complete over haul done on the front-end of my '01 Excursion [4 X 4]- last year; upper and lower ball joints, tie rods, locking hubs, shocks, brakes, tires- you name it...$5,000.00 later- and as soon as I drove it out of the shop- the same noisy creaky front-end.

Now does that mean you should forgo having the front-end inspected by a mechanic because of my comments; HECK NO!

I Know what it's like to have an upper ball joint fail- I was driving a 2-door coupe Monte Carlo on I-84, getting off the exit ramp that had something of a hair-pin curve to it- luckily I was going slow when BAMMM- the right tire caved in. No bodily injury to me and no body damage [other than the wheel falling off ] to the car. The weight of the front end collapsed on to the wheel and rim.

So heed my advice, for your safety and for the safety of you family [and other occupants] get the car checked by an ASE certified mechanic who knows how to inspect and repair the front-end of your car.

When I put the car in drive the back end bounces and their is a rubbing noise


Both of my big Ford trucks had to have the rear leaf spring mounts replaced. Look at your rear springs - if they are leaf style then check the rear mount points to see if they have broken loose. The springs end up moving way too much and it is not safe.

Right wheel makes bumping sound


Ford has a technical service bulletin out on this vehicle that may help solve your problem. The number is 04-6-1.
Here is the info:

ISSUE: Some 2000-2004 Focus vehicles may exhibit a front end creaking, crunching, grinding and/or rattling noise from the front suspension while driving at slow speeds, over bumps, and/or while turning.
ACTION: Noise, vibration, harness (NVH) conditions may originate from many areas. A thorough inspection of the front suspension is necessary to determine the cause. To service, refer to the following Service Procedure and inspect the suggested areas first.
SERVICE PROCEDURE
  1. Inspect front strut fasteners and confirm that they are tightened to the correct torque.
    1. Front strut to front knuckle, (one (1) driver / one (1) passenger), 90 N-m (67 lb-ft).
    2. Front strut mount to body, (three (3) driver / three (3) passenger), 30 N-m (22 lb-ft).
    3. Front strut rod to strut mount, (one (1) driver / one (1) passenger), 66 N-m (49 lb-ft). NOTE: MEASUREMENT OF TORQUE MUST BE DONE IN THE TIGHTENING DIRECTION. NOTE: IN ORDER TO APPLY THE PROPER TORQUE TO THE FRONT STRUT ROD TO STRUT MOUNT FASTENER, A HEX KEY WILL BE REQUIRED TO HOLD THE STRUT ROD IN PLACE WHILE TIGHTENING THE NUT.
  2. Inspect for loose stabilizer bar end links.
    1. Firmly grasp the links and shake them - both along the direction of the link and transverse to the link orientation in the inboard/outboard vehicle direction. If looseness is felt continue on to Step 2b, if no looseness is felt continue on to Step 3.
    2. Inspect the link end joints. If they do not appear severely corroded, torque the nuts (use anti-rotation feature to prevent ball joint damage) to 50 N-m (36 lb-ft), and repeat Step 2a. If links still feel loose after tightening or if the joint shows evidence of severe corrosion, replace the link (YS4Z-5K484-AA).
  3. Inspect for the top spring sleeve coming out of position. This may cause a squeaking noise between the sleeve and indent on the ridge of the upper spring seat, or it may cause a clicking noise between the spring and upper spring seat if the sleeve is completely out of position. If the sleeve is out of position continue on to Step 3a, if the sleeve is positioned properly continue on to Step 4.
    1. Install a new rubber sleeve (1S4Z-8484-AA). Install the new rubber sleeve starting from the top of the spring coil where it contacts the spring plate.
  4. If the noise is a clicking or popping from the front strut, install a service spring end cap (4S4Z-5L302-AA) on to the top spring tip. Reassemble and reinstall strut per the Workshop Manual Section 204-01.
