Hurry up and check your front coil springs.
If you have ruled out a tire with a slipped belt, you really should check those front coil springs out. Ford coil springs for the 2001-2003 model years have been notorious for breaking.
If your front coil springs (or the backs, too) are cracked, you may end up puncturing a tire if the spring comes off the strut. This can be very serious if you are driving.
If the FRONT coil springs have broken, Ford will have to replace them free of charge if your car has under 150k on them. Hope that helps.
Oh, and I assume your tires have been re-balanced and rotated.
