Check your tires for busted belts in tread! you will notice a bubble in the tread if the belts have come apart! Next check your lugnuts to insure they are tight! If they are, next you should check for warped rotors (Disc brake)! With the description of a wobble at any speed, sounds more like bad tires though!!!

SOURCE: 2002 Ford Explorer The door ajar alarm will go off

this problem is caused by the door ajar switches inside the door that are attached to the door latch sticking, there are 1 for each door and 2 in the tailgate, the only simple way to fix this is to have ford do a scan of the system an ID which of the switches is sticking, otherwise you must de-trim/remove door panel on every door and the tailgate until u ID the defective one, and it could be more than one.

Why would my 91 4wd explorer wobble when it goes down the road?

Well you could have a bent rim, a knot on the tire, the wheel could be loose. Also you might want to check the wheel bearings.

I have a 1991 Ford f150 with the 4.9 engine and 5-speed manual transmission. But the 5th gear only says overdrive. Can i drive in 4th gear at highway speeds without shifting to 5th?

Sure you can, It just makes the engine work a little harder. As long as your not running down the road at 3000 rpm's all the time, it will be fine

When driving down the road at a low speed the rear end wobbles. St higher speed it shakes.

One of your rear tires busted a steel belt in the tire. It usually causes a hump in the tire when this happens, causing the wobble

Wheel wobble. Looking at replacing most all the bushings relaying to the suspension. any advise, or maybe a good tutorial site to help me along?

Have your front suspension checked by someone you trust. there are so many things that can cause the symptoms you're experiencing. shocks, balljoints, bearings, steering stabilizer, bushings.

Check your steering stability bar I had the same problem and it turned out that I had bent that bar.

The death wobble is basically when you are driving your lifted jeep down the road and the front end starts to shake violently. It can happen at virtually any speed, though mostly above 40 mph or so, and is a frightening experience, especially for those witnessing it for the first time. Now it doesn’t throw you off the road or anything … the front end just shakes. And the only way to stop it is to slow down and pull over. So it wasn’t that hard to get used to at first. But as it happened more and more, it seemed to get more and more out of control.

Also, I suggest check this articles:
- Cures and Fix for Death Wobble, and
- Fixing Jeep Death Wobbles

I'm owner from '93 ZJ, and solve it with this clues.

Hope help (remember comment and rated this).

My 97 4wd explorer shakes and makes a clunking noise when I get above 50 mph I've replaced both front wheel bearings and did fine for about a month then started shaking and grabing on the driver side only....

It is usually the CV joints in the drive shaft(s) that are worn, and make this noise.
I would look at your CV joint boots, are they dirty and full of grease on the outside. Does the inner wheel well have grease slung onto it ?
Replacing the drive shaft is a difficult repair. I would have a reliable auto repair center give an estimate.
Please let me know what you find.

The speed wobble problem is serious on my vehicle.It is so bad at times if you hit a certain angle or speed ration on certain roads that it feels as if the vehicle wants to throw you out of the cockpit.I have spent R15 000 up to date on it also through Ford's good advice and have now given it back to Ford to resolve, The same day 3 other vehicles got taken in.I say everyone with a Ford Ranger cab should take it in and park their vehicles in the entrance of the workshop and walk away with the keys . They will soon get the message that it is their problem and not the drivers problem.
