@  mspenc45 : (31 May 2017 - 01:46 PM)

I've read 4000 or 4500RPM for launch, but anything more than your tires can grip and traction control will shut you down anyway!

I have a 2017 GT350 (2100 miles) that has developed a clunk / squeak in the passenger side rear suspension. Local ford dealer thought it was the right rear shock.. ordered same, installed it which seamed to have stopped the noise. It has returned again after just a 100 or so miles. Has anyone heard / experienced this problem? I haven't seen a TSB on this. Any insight appreciated.

Not sure but I've noticed a clunk when I pull out of my garage backwards. I think it might be that 'Hill Holder' option sticking...

One of the first things I did was turn off the hill holder.  It would activate even on slight inclines and prevent smooth acceleration before clunking loose.  I've been driving sticks since high school, so I figure I don't need a hill holder at this stage.   :clap:

 

I also get a clunk sometimes when backing out.  I know in my case, it's not the hill holder since it's turned off.  It seems to the brake pads that stick to the rotors.  Usually it happens when the car sits overnight after a wash or enough rain to thoroughly wet the rotors.  It can take a fair amount of throttle to break them loose.  Seems to be less pronounced if I leave the hand brake off.  Had a similar thing occur in my GTI.

That is exactly what is happening! I will leave the hand brake off. Thanks K!

Thanks for the responses. But.. It's much more of a squeak type noise. Not fill holder or e brake. My guess is / are suspension bushing or something similar. ..? As the replacement shock wasn't the issue.

the brakes do catch when the car has been sitting for a while .... and I didnt know you had the option of turning off the hill break. I love it on and it helps on those gentle slopes and gives u 

a few seconds to transition from the brake to the gas.

 

Your clunk if its that noticable, have you taken to your Ford store to see if they can find anything loose ?

my service folks told me that even the GT have the same issue- it's mainly due to having the parking brake on after a while. You really have to gas it to break free- almost feel like I am going to crack the axle!
