It could be your shift solenoid, or the wiring assembly for the shift solenoid, Ford has a TSB for it, it could also be a valve body gasket, I know the older explorers/mountaineers had issues with those as well.

2004 mercury mountaineer suspension failure after install of new struts, would the lower control arm being to tight cause this to happen


No, They are set in rubber bushings. They will move. New struts don't move a whole lot anyway. But if there is no movement, you may have gotten bad struts. Drive it and see how it does on the road.
