Can't really hear it over a computer, but Ford has way more steering part failures than anyone else, and noises and vibrations are nothing to ignore. Have the steering and suspension systems inspected at a tire and alignment shop. They will look at tie rod ends, ball joints, struts, control arm bushings, and they'll "read" the tire wear patterns. There isn't much that can be adjusted on front-wheel-drive Ford products during an alignment but they know how to get the best tire wear possible with what they have to work with.
