If any Escape owner doesn't know about this... it would be good information to pass along. You may save a person's life. I'm not sure what all years it covers... but the suspension cradle that holds the lower control arms, (and other components), is known for severely rusting out and failing. Ford has a TSB on this... for adding a brace to hold everything together... but it is only a band-aid. Eventually the cradle will fail... causing loss of steering... and worse. I just went through this with my EX. She was very lucky that it held up as long as it did... but it was getting deadly. Pics to follow shortly.
