It sound like the Camber is off in the rear. Did you have an alignment done after the new struts wear installed?

SOURCE: 2000 Ford Explorer AWD purchased with different size tires

It is true that driving with different size tires can damage the transfer case, depending on how long it was driven like that. But--- even if the tires are the same size it can cause this. if the tires are worn and two tires are new the circumference of the tires must not be more than 1/2 inch difference from each other, take a tape measure and put it around the tire in the center and measure the difference of each tire

SOURCE: how do i check the ball joints 99 xplorer 4x4

To check ball joints is relatively easy. There is a load carrying ball joint and a pivot ball joint. The pivot joint gets minimal wear. To check the load ball joint, jack up the wheel to be checked. With about an 1" of clearance off the ground, place your hand on top of the tire and wityh a long sturdy bar under the tire, move the bar up and down. Feel for lateral movement at the wheel. you want to make sure that the wheel bearings are good and the movement is slight if any.

Also check the bushings on the links that connect the lower control arm to the front stabilizer bar. There are two bushings on each side, one on the top and one on the bottom. If these are worn you will hear a rattle, particularly when hitting a bump or pothole. If they are the stock ones and need replacement, you probably will not be able to get the nuts loose on them. Just use an angle grinder or cutting wheel to cut them off and replace them. Most auto parts stores carry the kit that includes the bolts, nuts, washers and bushings needed for both sides.

Tire wear

get an ALIGNMENT, should be around $75 from local service shops. Your tie rods, ball joints, control arm bushings, wheel bearings and sway bar links being worn out can all contribute to tires wearing uneven or more than usual. Having properly inflated tires is a big help too. Also have your tires rotated every 10,000 miles. Also have the wheels balanced.

I have a tapping noise at all times what could it be?

Hi, you should have the front end inspected, you might have a bad tie rod, ball joint, or sway bar bushing. If you ignore some of these you can wear out your tires real quick.

Front end shakes bad when I brake

My dear if according to you,

You've replaced tie rod ends, lower ball joints, sway bar links, struts and strut ends, and the warped brake rotors and the issue is still at hand; then you ought to consider replacing the hubs.

Good luck.

2001 Tarus clunking sound

very common problem is the sway bay end links that attach to the strut from the sway bar. They sound like a light chuckling knock over bumps. The bushings that hold the subframe up wear or the bolts loosed due to the bushings wearing. usually the rear ones The bushings are 2 piece ,upper and lower Tighten with 18mm socket
