Question about 2004 Ford Escape

When i maneuver my ford escape 2004, it makes a weird bump sound from suspension. For a while the mechanic has replaced the rack end and ball joint, but the problem never disappear. Could it be shock spring? The suspension is still very nice

vibrations could be from failing cv joints and worn bushes in the drive shaft ends of the transmission. The bumps in the steering could be coming from worn bushes at the end of the rack and worn Ball joint ends of the steering

FRONT END SHAKES WHILE DRIVING OVER BUMPS


It could be several things. First check your shocks by pushing down on the bumper with your knee 3 quick times to make it bounce. It should come up and down once, stopping in the middle of the second up. If it moves any more than that the shocks or struts need replacing.

Then check your tie rod ends and ball joints. There are 4 tie rod ends on your vehicle. They are attached to the front wheel and the steering box. There is an outer one on the wheel and an inner one at the steering rack. Try to move them side to side or up and down. Any movement means they need to be replaced.

To check the ball joints, you will have to jack the wheel up so it is clear of the ground. Grab the tire at 12 and 6 o'clock and try to move it in and out. If it moves, then have someone watch as you move it and see if the movement is at the bottom ball joint or the top one, if your car has an upper ball joint. Front wheel drive cars with spring/strut suspension don't have upper ball joints.

I would be inclined to suspect the tie rod ends as being your problem, but it could easily be multiple things so check them all. Hope this helps.

How are the motor mounts? After all that work, you are down to only a few things it could be. good luck. Look for any bent suspension pieces. Does it have a sway bar up front? Check linkage and bushings on that.

It sounds like it is coming from the passsenger front wheel : bump bump bump going down the road and sometimes as if the front brake is coming lose ( not the case) 2005 4x4 ford escape is it possible just...


This sounds to me like a broken strut more than anything. As far as i know you can not remove the front differental, because this is the main drive. The rear wheels are only drivin while in four wheel drive. I would sugest to take your car to a mechanic shop and have them "shake down the front end" for any loose parts. A ball joint can also cause a noise as well as a strut mount or strut.

My 1994 ford f-150 has a popping noise coming from the front end. Can't locate source


This can be a worn tie rod end, ball joint, steering sector, or some part of the suspension. Put the vehicle on a rack and inspect all components. Remove the front wheels and inspect the brake system. Torque the lug nuts to 105 ft/lbs.

95 ef ford sedan suspension problem


What was said about the wear of the front end part when the alignment was given? I could be wrong but, I would say, Not likely for the tie rod ends and definately not the shocks for knocking sounds.. It sounds more like bad ball joints poping, although the idler arm and tye rod ends could be worn also .
