Had this problem since 2000 Taurus was new. Three times at dealership and they "could not reproduce problem". Seems to be coming from the left rear, more pronounced when cold or passengers in the back seat. I thought I checked everything but the rear anti swaybar bushings are a possibility. Sounds like it is under the trunk area. I will try and take photos if I get under there tomorrow. There is a posting from December 2005 that this problem turned out to be the rear subframe bushings. I don't quite understand how the rear subframe bushings could have been the problem so I am thinking about replacing the rear swaybar bushings that attach to the body under the trunk. On mine if this is the problem must have either been improperly installed or defective at factory assembly. Sheila are the swaybar endlinks you reference the parts attaching farther down closer to the wheel or the bushings at the body under the trunk?
If the subframe bushings go bad, the subframe starts to clunk around where the bushings were. Sometimes they completely disappear...
This is the factory ford manual pictures, the sway bar link goes from the stabilizer (sway) bar to the strut. Should be bolted right into the strut like in picture two. Picture one, the link is the far left (I think?).
This is how to remove the entire stabilizer bar... to remove the link it's just two bolts lol!

I am curious to find out what it is as I have the EXACT same symptoms...I hear it when I'm alone if I take a corner too quickly or hit a big bump, but it makes itself known especially when I have a full car of people.
