Clunking in rear upon accelration

Check your universal joints. At least one of them in the driveshaft is bad, usually the back one. This is a serious matter as the driveshaft could fall out of the truck and dig into the asphalt.

I have a 97 Ford Explorer that makes a loud clunking noise during acceleration...if I baby it it doesn't happen and it goes away after I've reached 50 or 60...only happens during acceleration

could be a rod bearing going bad.or could be bad gas causing it to spark knock realy bad. try to put some 93 octane in and see if it goes away.

My 2000 Explorer makes a whirring sound when you accelerate - can this noise be due to a bent tierod? The previous owner had an accident involving the front end and was told that the tierod was haywire?

Typcially tie rods will only make a clunking noise or a squeak. The whirring sound if would suspect to be a wheel bearing. When you drive, slowly turn from left to right, if the pitch changes than its the bearing.

Clunk sound when I push gas pedal to fast. Is this a drivetrain or transmisson problem?

I would guess that its a U joint in the drive train. When you accelerate slowly it can handle the stress and doesent clunk but when you step on it it clunks hard. Probably the drive shaft U joint, have it checked out but a U joint shouldnt be thw most expensive of the possibilities and would be a good place to start.

Clunking noise when you accelerate at low speed under neath driver really bangs until you get to about 25 miles an hour

From your description sounds like the fuel injector or port is clogged some at throddle.
