2007 ford focus,rear end dances like bump stear,there is a popular bushing problem wich one is it?Or more than one?

Hello, I'm Chris.
I will do my best to answer your question fast and accurate using the info you have provided. Thanks for visiting Just Answer.


I found no ford messages for this concern on a 07 model, Can you provide the info you found so I can see if it is a possible issue on this model prior to me getting into diagnostics, is there also a noise with this issue?

Chris, no noise is audible. It just wiggles a little on bumps, rear parts guy says 00-07 are same.My custumer also has an 02,says he has had these bushings replaced twice on that.The man told him it was very common.I think it's the short straight arm or link,from ahead of the axel, bottom,on line with axel.For lack of proper term,I'l call it a track bar.

I went ahead and checked and none of the 00-07 focus modles have a TSB for rear bushing fatigue. The only rear bushings I have had to repair are the stabilizer bar end links being broken, you can check all the bushings with a pry bar to see if any are loose or move excessive. I have included pictures of all the components in the rear suspension with bushings so you can check them all.
