Question about 2000 Ford Focus
I think you should check brake calipers and brake pads. The suspension is in constant motion and the shock dampening for the body is suppose to isolate the body.
There are compounds like "Brake Quiet" which is a rubberized paste that is to be applied between the pads and caliper. You may need new brake hardware which will tighten the pads and calipers to the car.
Check your heatshields on the exhaust system. Gravel can get sandwiched between them and rattle like crazy. Check them COLD and hit them with your hand and listen for rattles. Sometimes hubcaps can pickup stones, but if you work on the brakes you will be taking the hubcaps off anyway. Good Luck on this repair.
