Check the left rear. If you see an inner fender well, the answer is yes.

Can a shock mounting make a squeak noise when going through a dip or turning the steering wheel. shocks already tested.

There are a lot of suspension points that can develop a squeak. Look at there: Front strut tower mounts, sway bar rubber mounts(if equipped). If you recently got new tires that may be a little larger than the originals, the tire may hit suspension parts when turning. They can rub against the inner fender well plastic parts as well. Best thing to do first is get a chassis lube. If that fails to resolve the problem, then look deeper into the problem by a good mechanic.

2001ford escape burning rubber smell and noise

Check the rear upper strut towers. These are notorious for rusting out, and causing the tire to hit the inner fender well. To my knowledge, no recall on this, but I've fixed a few with a rear quarter panel replacement from rock auto. You wouldn't notice it much on the rear of the vehicle. Smell the rear fender wells for burnt rubber odor.

Rusting strut towers

Yes but you will need a panel beater to do the job. The inner guard (the bit that carries the strut tower) is an integral part of the front of the car and needs to be cut away and another one welded into place. However if one is rusted out the other side may not be far behind so consider the possibility of junking the car (rust ) and getting another one as the repair cost may be more than what it is worth

Not that I know of the only thing I know of is to take it to either a body shop or a welder and have a plate welded into place. How old is the escort, it may not be worth the cost. How is the rest of the car rust wise?
