Default Q: 2007 GT Suspension Issue?

any suggestions for my 2007 mustang gt regarding suspension upgrades? It has the 'loose lumber' front end rumble which Ford has already replaced the faulty upper strut mounts with mounts that still make noise, albeit slightly less than the originals. Sick of the noise, so wondering if anyone has replaced their mounts and did it help? There are suspension kits out there by companies i never heard of, and they come with new mounts with adjustable caster as well as ride height adjustments. I am thinking this may get rid of the noise and improve the handling.
E Bay has tons of them for 399-700 bucks, but it does not say where they are made and I can't find any feedback on them.

Any help is appreciated.

I went with boss competition front control arms on mine and it was well worth the upgrade. The gt500 arms are great for the money as well. Mine had a nasty clunk in the front and this was the direct cause of the issue

We will be working on buddy's 2009 right after we finished installing the new rack and tonneau cover for kayak mount on the truck. The clunk on his Saleen is getting louder, we'll take a look at boss comp.
