Question about 2001 Ford Explorer
Posted by Anonymous on
A fires misalignment with the road is corrected by a wheel alignment providing all the steering components are within acceptable spec. Go to a good full service front end shop that specializes in truck alignments.

SOURCE: Tires worn on the inside only
this is caused by a camber problem, camber is the tilt of the tire in and out, this can be caused by worn lower control arms, have them checked by a front end shop, they will in most cases do a visual check of the front end and give u an estimate for free, I know tire shops do this.

I had this problem also. I had the rims cleaned, balanced the wheels and replaced the shocks. Each action helped a bit but replacing the shocks was the most improvement.

SOURCE: I have a 99 explorer with torsion and the bottom of the tires tilt outward. I have replaced the outter tie rod, upper ball joints with arms lower ball joints and hub bearings. Any idea what else would
Was an alignment performed with each part replacement? Yes, then don't worry about it. My 90 Bronco (Full Size) sat the same way even with a different suspension setup (Twin Traction Beams). The camber angle that is on these more capable vehicles is to provide better traction in off highway situations. The toe and caster angles are setup to minimize the tire wear even with the unusual stance.

There are several components that could cause noise from the front when turning. The components to be concerned about are, Wheel bearings, Ball Joints, Tie rod Ends, CV joints and brake rotors.
Jack the car up under the control arm until the wheel is off the ground about 3 inches. Slide a pry bar under the tire and place the other hand on the top of the tire. As you lift and lower the pry bar fell for loose movement in the tire. If there is such movement you have a bad wheel bearing.
On your vehicle this is a sealed Hub.
Repeat the test above and watch the upper and lower ball joints for movement. Is there is movement replace the bad ball joint.
Tie Rod ends:
You have changed the inner and outer tie rod ends so you are probably covered there.
The Joint is housed in a rubber boot. If you can feel the joint inside the boot you can turn the tire forward and back and feel for play in the joint. If you are not able to feel the play you can loosen the clamp on the boot and push the boot out of the way. Then repeat the test.
You have already changed the rotors so this is not likely the issue.
