My FWD 2001 Ford Focus has an odd rubbery squeak sound combined with a more thumpy sound from inside the vehicle at any speed. There is no sound when accelerating, and a slight sound (much less) when going backwards. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3THHZrpKKAU&feature=youtu.be&t=137
I replaced the axle and did some tight turns and the sound went away for a few weeks, but then came back in force. Any ideas?
My guess is that it's not the bearing, and that my "new" axle is remanufactured poorly, given the $40 price vs. the $140 motorcraft price on Rockauto. Not sure though!
