When I press down on either front fender, I hear a clicking type of sound. Any ideas what that may be? Car has 92,409 miles.

Press down as in, cycle the suspension, or just push on the sheetmetal? If that sound is coming out of your suspension, it might be wise to inspect your upper and lower ball joints. Actually, I would say that any Thunderbird with 90k+ miles should have its ball joints inspected.

I found the seal around the upper ball joint split on both the left and right side. Is this a costly repair? I don't have the tools or the knowledge to do it. What is involved?
