I have a 2001 Ford Escape, I just changed the struts and shocks and now I have a grinding/clunking noise coming from the front end, especially on the passanger side. I can't figure out exactly where the noise is coming from. It seems to be from the half shaft, but I can't find any issues with it. We pulled the boot back and it has plenty of grease and no signs of wear.

Did you check the wheel bearing? Were the strut plates good and not loose? Does the sound change with speed?
