question about front broken springs

Hi
I read the messages about the fornt spring breaks in Ford Focus.
Almost one month ago I had my Focus 2001 for service to the
delalership. I think the car was fine and I needed only oil change and
the rutine. I told me that it is a recall for front springs and rear
door latches. Since that day I have some very bothersome noise when
steering both sides. Otherwise the car works find (do not mention the
squealing and every 15000 miles change of front brake pads and rotors,
the batery that went dead on christmas day 2004 and the fuel pump that
I did not know it was a recall for it.

I am a little bit worried about the nosie during steering. Is it
dangerous? Is it related to broken springs?

any response will be appreciated

regards

teodor

This is a safety issue. Newsgroups are not the appropriate place to deal
with it. You need to take your car to a dealer or good repair shop as soon
as possible.

Iíve had my 2000 focus SE for 5 years and the front end always makes a
clunking noise when there is a dip in the roadway or bump. No one can
find anything wrong on the lift, the springs and shocks are ok so I
live with the noise. Obviously there is a problem, but who knows what
it is...
I received a letter from ford some years ago that if my front springs
fail they would replace them, but no recall..
Here is a site with recalls for vehicles, look up your vehicle to see
if it is part of a campaign..
