2000 Mercury Mystique Noise

08-21-2008, 08:25 PM
I'm sure hoping someone could help me diagnose the noise I'm hearing in my front end.

I have a 2000 Mercury Mystique that we (my brother & I) just replaced the struts, strut mounts, and ball joints on. We did everything by the book but when I took it home, there was a noise in the front end when I made either a left turn or a right turn. I had the front end aligned today but the noise, even though it's less harsh, is still there.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what the problem is in the front end?

I would suspect a CV joint making a noise if it only does it on turns. Inspect the boots as a leaking boot indicates this joint is going dry. A bad bearing will make a noise going straight.
Get in a cul de sac and make sharp turns in both directions and try to isolate the side.
Check posts in either the Ford or Mercury forum. They had links for cheap prices.
