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.
