Had a similar issue.  Tie Rods were loose.  I had 35K miles on it and the dealership replaced them under warranty.

What is causing my front end to ride rougher than it use to?


Potholes are brutal on vehicles, you have springs for sure even if you don't have shocks and they weekend with time and the road, they are Not that hard to replace if you have a spring compressor removal tool....

Popping and squeaking sound


The popping sound could be UV joints. But hard to tell if one cannot hear them. Worse case scenario, transmission going. The squeaking sound is probably your struts. The upper strut bearings are probably worn, and that could mean the struts are worn too. Depends on the mileage on your vehicle. The springs twist when under stress and this is what the upper bearing is for. In good shape, it would not make any sounds.

When driving 35 mph + the front end seems to bump it feels like going over a bump in the road i dont think its the transmission because it does not happen when shifting it happens more when driving up hill...


Could be a tire out of round, or even a bad strut. Bounce the front end, if it's spring like, the strut (s) may be bad. Look for leaking of oil from them, that is a sign of a bad strut.

Was going down road and hit a dip an heard a load pop in front end. Go over it all time its not big. It was close to home so I milk it. When I go to start slowing down and apply brake I heard a nasty...


sounds like you possibly broke a ball joint...jack up the wheel and see if it has a lot of side play...do up and down also. if not sure i would i would have it checked by a mechanic...have you ever seen those cars on the side of the road with the front wheel collapsed!! you want to be on the safe side.

Noise in the front end of my 1997 Dodge Caravan 3.0L


You can drive on those struts untill it has no sping, and even then it is just dangerous because of bad handling. If it is you struts, then your car should bounce up and down if you tap the brakes, because the gas seal is leaking.
Struts are very easy to replace. The only special tool is a spring compressor, but it is easy to use, and you may be able to borrow one at an auto parts store like the AutoZone. Just a couple bolts at the top and bottom, and it comes right out. They cost less than $100.
If it doesn't bounce...it could be your half-shaft. Does it click when you make a turn backing up?

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.
