I'm aware this isn't the "tech" part of the forum, but it certainly is much more busy. In that, I'm hoping somebody may be able to offer some advice.
I'm not the most mechanic-savvy when it comes to cars - I'm still learning. I've got an issue with my 2002 Escape, where I'm hearing a clunking as I brake coming from the back left. I've been doing a lot of reading, and some signs point to the ABS Tone Ring. I have new shoes/drums as of two months ago, so they should not be the issue.
However.. I've also noticed that the rubber "casing" on the end of the CV joint/shaft is slit, with plenty of grease leaving it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I'm extremely frustrated with this car.
