Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
This is normal, the combination of the right turn and the bump causes an unusual clearance issue with the wheel and the body.

Hi the most common fault on escort suspension is worn track control arm bushes followed by anti roll bar bushes i think you call them stabiliser bushes i would agree with your ford tech guy re the strut bushes let me know if it solves it

Hi, this could be a combination of many issues. i would check the following.
Check the strut mounts. there could be some damage here concerning the mounts. i would also check the control arm bushings as well. check for damage here. I would also inspect the CCV half Shaft as well. this is a known problem spot(re manufactured)CCT.
The last problem spot here will be the actual wheel bearings in the front. they may be worn or dry. this could cause the symptoms you stated as well.
you will find the issue in one or all of the above problem spots stated.
Please rate and god bless:)

I had the same problem. It would squeak kinda bad when I pull in my driveway. My cv boots were good. I found the ball joints were getting wore out, as well as the shocks were over 10 yrs old. I replaced the ball joints and shocks. I know my squeaks stopped, I personally believe it was the shocks that fixed my squeaking.

are you refering to the 5/16" bolt with 4 rubber bushings? 2 on each end? If so, cut them. Everything you need will come in kit. Bolts, bushings and sleeves.

That noise sounds to me like a Ball Joint problem. I would check to see if you have fittings to grease the front suspention.
Good luck, Allen
