When I turn my escape left or right is has a clicking sound. Now I changed my hub assembly and bearing and it is still doing it. What else could it be. Because I was going to change the drives side also but it still coming form the right. And my abs and 4x4 lights r on still abs stays on and 4x4 flashes.

Sounds like a failed outer cv joint. The grease either leaks out or hardens up and does not lube the ball bearings causing the noise.

Get the whole shaft. Got a lifetime warranty and easier to change the whole unit than just the joint.
