2001 Ford Escape. When I drive over slight road bumps, (such as road crack seals, uneven ground etc. Their is a 'rocking grating metal on metal rattling' noise that seems to be coming from the front right suspension. I've looked at everything under there and nothing seems to be obviously loose as it sounds. Is this likely a strut problem, or a lower control arm problem or lower control arm bushing problem? The car drives okay still, but it bothers me that maybe there is something really wrong and dangerous with the front suspension. Any ideas, please let me know.
