What is causing my explorer to **** & clunk with a loud grinding or rubbing noise when i turn corners?


Sounds like you have either ball joint issues, or problems with the CV joints. The other possibility is a problem in the transfer case causing the front axle to bind. You can physically look at the CV joint boots to see if they are torn open and many times you can grab onto the axle and give it a good tug to see if it will move..it should not.

I'm assuming a manual transmission--check the fluid level in it. There is a removable plug on the side of the case. If removed, stick your finger in the hole far enough to bend it down a little, pull it back out and see if the end is covered with a thick oil. If not, it may be too low to lube properly. You can put more in yourself, but it's pretty messy--take it to a lube shop and have them top it up. If the above doesn't help, it is probably time to service the internal parts in the transmission.
