Question about 2001 Ford Expedition
Sounds like the upper or lower ball joint on the steering knuckle or possibly the wheel bearing -- jack the suspension up on that side -- place the jack under the control arm so you load the suspension .. have someone move the wheel in and out and up and down -- if there is play in the in the ball joints it will be noticable. If the ball joints are not moving then most likely is your wheel bearings -- (hint brake fade on first application indicates wheel bearings).. when driving with loose wheel bearings the brake rotor will walk back and forth moving the pads further and further away from the rotor, which in turn will cause the brake pedal to go almost to the floor on first application. If the brake pump up when you are stationary and hold good -- wheel bearing will be the problem..
