Question about Ford Explorer
I have a 2006 ford explorer. Sounds like a roaring noise in front end. Louder when turning right, not as loud when turning left. no popping noise when turning. Bearings or 4wd transfer case?

SOURCE: noise in front end, sounds
You say the rear wheel axles and bearings have been replaced, you mention nothing of the front wheels, you have the symptoms of a front wheel bearing being worn out, remove them and check for pitting in the bearing rollers or the bearing races, I am sure you will find a problem. Hope this helps solve your issue with the bearing noise.

You must replace wheel bearings in pairs to avoid loading the old bearing and, in time ruining your new bearing hub it is possible that you have already damaged the new hub

This sounds like the front hubs are trying to engage. This motor/4wd is real susceptable with vacuum problems. I let my oil get real dirty and it caused the low vac.The dealer performs vac test for front IWES (3c247) and found both of them leaking out of tolerance. This also caused damage on the splined contact points so they had to replace both front wheel hubs (1104)

Whining noise is probably in one of the pulleys or belts. Probably the power steering. And the popping is probably CV axles.
