Re: 2005 Escape Knock When Turning
Sounds can bounce, giving you a false indication of where the sound is originating from. However, old, higher mileage shocks (60K+) can cause noise from worn out rubber bushings. Sometimes, a re-torque of the bolts and a visual inspection would be the way to go.
The cheaper route is to check the spare tire for air pressure. If the spare loses pressure the sidewall will be able to flex and it will 'bounce' off the bottom of the vehicle.
