      what you have to do is have someone bounce it while you get down there and listen to where the sound is coming from. Other than that, you could also grease anything that has grease fittings, and see if that gets rid of it, and spray some silicone lube on the rubber suspension bushings. Generally speaking, it could be a ball joint, tie rod end, control arm bushings, sway bar bushings, shock or strut bushings, coil spring seat...

      Then it can be the bushings in the control arm and other suspension pieces.

    Left side of car body is 1 inch higher than right side. Measurement from ground to body along center of each wheel.
    32000 miles. This difference of 1 inch remains the same whether the rear air is on or disconnected. Auto computer says there is no air suspension problem. Right front strut 71346 was recently replaced.

      Usually a leak in the rear air bags cause the compressor to run constantly and heat up and eventually they draw too much current and pop the fuse. The fix is almost always replacing the compressor and rear air springs. I hope that you like this car. By the way, a good supplier for these items is >> Strutmasters.com

      you dont'; have drum brakes in the town car. Check you tail pipe hangars. These things are weak for the weight of the tail pipe and the rubber mounts go bad real quick. Your sway bars may not be bad just the bushings.

    Ok the vehicle has to new bladders on the rear, and the pump was working but does not seem to be working now.
    Have no idea what it maybe now I have already checked all fuses everything all working, was told it could possibly be the solenoid.

      Try flushing out the power steering/atf fluid and replacing with a good ATF mercon fluid. My friend did this in his Dad's car using Mobil 1 ATF and it stopped the leak he had and the steering is nice and smooth. They tried Lucas and the stock ATF but it was too thick in winter and the steering was horrid and then it started to leak after he changed some out. He then flushed it and replace it with Mobil 1 and it has been good for over 6-8 months.

      Try exchanging the left rear wheel with a spare or with one on the other side; and see if the sound changes. Plastic wheel covers often create clicking noises as they flex. I would remove those covers; or get different style wheels which don't use wheel covers.

    How to fix traction control light?
    Traction control light stays blinking repeatedly and my cruise control does not work, started at the same time?
     
    • Spoon Sports

      If your traction control light is constantly flashing and you are NOT drawing an OBD fault code, then the system may need to be calibrated. Ford can do this for $92. A system needs to be calibrated when a component of the traction control is replaced or disconnected and reconnected. If, however, the light returns, the problem is likely the clock spring in the steering column, also known as a "sliding contact." Ford/Lincoln is famous for these things not lasting long. It is the component that brings power to everything you need in the steering wheel (horn, cruise, air bag, radio volume, etc.). When this goes bad, it is tantamount to disconnecting/reconnecting the steering wheel position sensor (a component of the traction control). Typically, you will have other issues, such as a "high resistence" code from the air bag, or the horn or cruise will not work, etc.

    Problem with the airbag system on the driver side
    The airbag system is beeping ever 45 minutes driving
     
    • Spoon Sports

      On most vehicles, the airbag light should come on for @6 seconds, and then go off if the system is working properly. If there is a fault or a problem in the system, the light will remain illuminated, or flash continuously. If the airbag light does not work properly, some vehicles have an audible tone that sounds indicating a problem with the airbag light system. When the light is on (or the tone is sounding), the airbag will NOT deploy, even in an accident.

      The flashing light on your car is telling there is a problem. On some vehicles, the light is flashing a two digit code. Your vehicle will require a scan tool for the proper diagnosis, (and not the scanner at Auto Zone…airbag systems cannot be ready by that scanner) but here's a site that will explain everything you need to know about airbag lights and resetting the system. Once you know the code, you can most likely repair it yourself. There are fairly easy procedures that most people are capable of repairing.
      Airbagsolutions.com has the fault code charts to tell you what is wrong! Although it’s a pay site ($14.95/day), it’s a lot cheaper than going to the dealer.

      Some vehicle manufacturers accommodate systems without a scanner (like Toyota, Lexus, Nissan, Infinity, Honda, Acura, Ford, Lincoln, Mazda & Mercury) . Most all other vehicles require a scan tool for the diagnosis. Here is a link to the list of vehicle and scanner requirements.
      Check out these websites also for more info on airbag systems and the light.
      Lastly, check your vehicle for recalls through this link.
