Brake Clunking - PLEASE HELP!

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.

I'd replace the axle and see if that fixes it and go from there.

If Clunking is coming from the rear a shoe could have come loose. The CV joint would clunk when you turn but the boot should be replaced before the joint gets damaged.

I could be wrong in saying this, but since the back tires do not turn, I don't think I would hear the clunking as I'm turning as you would with the fronts.
