    the never ending clunk

    Ok it doesn;t really matter if they are bolted upside or downside, but the problem I found with the polys is they don;t compress well. So in certain weather conditions you will see that clunk. I had polys on mine and every time I used my ac or really hot conditions the clunk would return and...

    the never ending clunk

    those are bolted incorrectly, they are suppose be on the bottom. I replaced my links with ford ones and I think I got the problem solved. Ford links have plastic casing over the bushing so they don;t flex with different road conditions, the aftermarket ones just can;t duplicate the OEM this time.

    I am almost positive its the clip that plugs into the sensor. Where can I get another clip to replace the plug? Ford will not sell just the plug they want to sell the whole harness. also, in the sensor is working do the codes still need to be reset or should they go out after the problem is...

    This seems to be a hard code in the system and it won' t flicker on and off. Once the CEL is on, it won;t shut off till you clear the code. Where is the ground for the harnesss and where does the harness come froM?

    starting noise

    Does it do it all the time or once an awhile. If it doesn't do it all the time, it could be your flywheel. I had a 1995 explorer before and the flywheel was damaged and it did that.
