Question about 2005 Mercury Montego
When rocking car up and down (like testing shock bounce) can you hear it coming from the upper strut plate?
Probably not recommended by the ASE mechanics but I have used lubricant on the upper strut bearings for some time.Just do not over do it and have it leak on your brakes.

You need to replace the universal/cv joint, that's the bit on the end of the drive shaft that articulates the turn of direction, while still turning the hubs.
It should have a rubber surround, (which no doubt is split), called a gator, which holds all the grease necessary to lubricate the joint.
Prices can vary quite dramatically.
Once replaced, the noise will disappear.
Plz don't forget to rate me good, thanks ;)
