oh yeah, strut rod bushings do that most definitely... mine are shot on the right side of the car, and when i brake it pulls to the right pretty good, the strut arm also rattles like crazy. pop a prybar in between the strut arm and the tierod or something and try to move it up and down, i bet it will move around a good 1/4" like mine dose XD.
their like $12 a piece and come in bags of two, so you might as well do both sides like i plan to this weekend.
check the sticky here in the suspension forum for details, it has part numbers from ford. stay AWAY from the Moog ones or anything else really... moog makes some decent stuff for the most part, but those plastic 'problem solver' bushings are RUBBISH...
RUST!! eating away at me more than the rear fender wells
