Brake & axel issue


I have a 2004 Escape.  Until now this vehicle has require NO unscheduled maintenance, it’s been very reliable.  I have what may be two issues.  First the vehicle makes a rumbling sound (like you are diving on cobble stone) when you reach speeds over 40 MPH.  The tires are less than a year old (8000 miles), have been balanced again and rotated.  The vehicle had an alignment and the bearings have been replaced by Ford.  Not sure what is causing the issue, please help.


The Second issue is squeaky brakes (specially the right rear).  I have replaced the front brake pads with new ones, replace the front rotors (and had them turned before installing), with new ones.  The rear brake shoes have been replaced with new ones and the drum was turned.   After this the sound persisted.  I had to leave town so my wife took it to the Ford dealership and they replace all the new brakes and the drum ($500 exercise in futility), surprise to no avail.  The harmonic squeak/chirp is still there, and mostly in my right rear wheel, some noise is coming from all wheels.  Out of ideas please advise.


Thank you,

2004 Escape
