There was a design problem where there was insufficient surface area for the bushing. That resulted in rapid wear, then a squeak, and / or excessive free play. You need to replace the brake and clutch pedal support with an improved design. The service bulletin number is 93-22-10.
Ford is well-known to not provide parts for their vehicles that are more than three or four years old, but the dealer should be able to provide you with a copy of the service bulletin. If the same pedal support was used for many years, the dealer's parts department may still have some in stock. You can also look at your local auto parts stores for a display rack of "problem solver" parts. Those are bushings, o-rings, switches, and all kinds of other unusual parts that are manufactured by aftermarket companies for people like you. Window track slides, door hinge pins, and clutch pedal bushings are the typical things you will find among these parts. Be aware though, when that superseded pedal bracket was developed, that is what the replacement bushings will usually fit. You may not find a bushing for the old design.
If you are going to do this type of repair yourself, you need to get a copy of the manufacturer's service manual. Those will include instructions, line drawings, torque values for fasteners, and a list of special tools that might be available or required. You can buy a subscription to the same online manuals independent shops use, but I prefer paper manuals. You will find those on eBay for real good prices. I used to buy a lot of books from "laurieandjeff". They go all over the country to dealership auctions. The last I heard, they go by "blackhatauctions" now. I have not checked for a few years, but there are all kinds of other people selling manuals too. What you must watch out for though with Ford is they printed a number of different volumes for a given vehicle. Be sure you get the book with clutches in it. There should be a book for "transmissions", and clutches should be in that book.
