I didn't notice this until my dad mentioned it to me the other day, but it seems as though my escape is slightly slanted...

It is noticeably lower on the driver's side from both the front and back. I checked it on a level surface and the presure in the tires is all the same. Has anyone else noticxed this? Has this been mentioned here before? I searched for a few keywords but couldn't find anything.

Take it back to the dealership. Could be springs

It's going in tomorrow for the clunking when turning left and the slant. I have a feeling they are just going to tell me I'm crazy but oh well.

Gas tank full? :lol:

On a serious note, I'm going to on edge to see if my 2009 is doing it too.

Eagerly awaiting the outcome (because I'm curious and nosy by nature :yes: )

Took her in yesterday and...nothing fixed yet. They kept calling me saying they weren't able to hear the grinding sound when turning left. I told them they weren't doing it right lol. Seems to only happen when my foot is on the break, turning full left slowly.

Eventually I went out and took the tech for a drive...around the parking lot. 30 seconds literally. He said "Oh yeah, that doesn't sound good."

He thinks it's the sway bar and said that may be the reason for the slight slant (which he had not actually looked at yet and it is hard to notice). He needs to put it up on some special hoist that was in use for the rest of the day so it is back in on Friday first thing. Hopefully fixed then. That would be a nice birthday present.

I'll keep this thread updated with the results for both issues.

If you figure anything out in the next few days, let me know. I might be stopping by the dealership on Friday for a job application and depending on time, might have them address it. Good point with the being on the brake thing. I notice it pulling into the parking ramp and when I am turning into a parking spot.

My 03 has a slant to one side as well, seems this is a fairly common thing. This and front wheels look like they have some negative camber. (this could be my bad bearings, but I have seen this on other escapes)
