Question about 1999 Ford Explorer
Firestone manager told me explorers are know for having a sort of air pocket that develops after you raise them off the ground and the air pockets and vibrations work themselves out over a couple of miles being driven. I have never heard of this in any car but have never had ball joints replaced in the last 10 cars I have owned.
That is not correct what you were told. The sound you may hear are air pockets being created from the rubber hitting the road, but it has to do with the camber setting of the wheel. It needs to be adjusted and it sounds like you were lied to because they either do not have to tools to do it, do not know how to do it, or are just ignorant of this fact. A GOOD 4X4 shop will back up this fact.
