ive got noises too, 99 duratec.... my front brakes are garbage, pulsate and sound like a truck accelerating when i break from 50mph or above, and now they scream wildly when i am coming to a stop (i just had that fixed in may!)... and my car makes a loud noise at 45 and a couple other places and a louder one at 70, hard to describe, but it sounds like your in a propellor airplane almost... all my noise comes from the front, with the brakes its prolly warped rotors, with the propellor noise its prolly something to do with drivetrain. dont get me wrong, i know normal car noises, i know when something is normal and when its not, mine are not normal and should prolly be taken care of. if anyone has any input, id like to hear it :)

Ok, if it clunks while coming to a stop, more than likely it's a motor or tranny mount. I am having this problem too. It has nothing to do with brakes. Hold your brake pedal down and step on the gas, and listen for a clunking sound coming fromt the engine compartment.

The motor mounts on these cars are crap.

I would not say there crap, they have to take more abuse than any other car i know. This is because our cars only have 3 motor mounts (gen 3's). While most have 5+

Anyways, could be a bad motor mount or front sway bar end link.
