    hey guys I'm back in the mustang scene. Picked up an 03 cobra with 75xxx miles. I noticed it makes an annoying cheap clunking noise whenever I go over any bumps. It sounds like the damn rotors, lca,uca,springs,shocks, and everything else in the suspension is about to just fall to shit lol. Anyways I've been reading it could possibly just be the bushings in the lca. This seems to be a notorious issue with mustangs since I use to hear this same noise in my younger brother's new edge. Any feedback would be appreciated thanks!

    Front? Look at the CC plates.
    Rear Yup Uca/lca bushings likely suspects also ck shock bushings.

    What part of town do you live in?

    Nice to see a clean black cobra..
    Ours just hit 401,000 and shows it..

    Oddly.we live off a dirt road.. amazingly we only had 1 part changed for this noise..being a past front end mechanic I knew cause when beyond pads

    If you don't find issue in normal brake pad rattling being issue ..I let you know..

    There are some things found to be issues on 03 Cobra ...

    I also have some copies of fords factory manual on cd..master manual 03/04 covers all 26 vehicles made..complete wiring..emission repairs and tsb/recall

    I live on the south side by Harlandale HS. Thanks for the compliment! Do they still have any meets these days? I checked out brooks Sunday night but there was lots of cops so I just stuck around for a couple of minutes and left didn't want any tickets for no front licnse plate.

    Biffs is still active on Friday nights but no one here goes anymore.
    All the kids hang elsewhere (thankfully) and the old folks seem to not be around here anymore (except me) the FB page has killed LSS but I dont do FB so I is here. And I make Biffs still in MACH or L or even on bike.

    Soda pops in Boerne is a good one as well but again older crowd and no BS place as far as shenanigans.
    It is every other Sat 1st one for season is Sat 3/25.
