My 2000 Taurus wagon was like that. About the time I got the recall notice,
I was changing the brakes and found that the rear spring was broken. Took
it to the dealer, pointed out that the problem was obvious and common, and
talked them into replacing both the rear springs (spring rate changes with
age, so only changing one was not going to be good for the handling, etc.
That's what I told the dealer, and they agreed.) This was in 2005 or so, so
it was out of warranty at the time.
