Hi,
This could be a combination of things. I'll suggest them and see how you go.

The tyre pressures have the most effect on road noise. Strangely there is more transmitted noise when tyre pressures are correct. Under inflation cuases a cushioning effect, whereas over inflation can make the tyre profile balloon reducing road contact.
Check that they are in limit.

Tyre tread profile can produce a humm if there are straight lateral bars. Good designs use offset bars to reduce this effect.

Cover any loadspace, and ensure sound deadening panels are in place.

Shock absorber top and bottom bushes come in different relilliancies. Hard provide tighter handling - but allow more road noise, soft absorbs noise, but allows more roll.
These bushes harden over time - thus transmitting more noise.

Shock absorber seals can swell enough to make a shock "sticky" - thus transmitting more noise.

Other suspension bushes likewise harden and become more solid with age.

So, - If it is bothering you, Check tyre pressure and condition. Cover loadspace with sound deadening material - A rubber mat in the boot works wonders.
Inspect rear shocks for wear/ corrosion.
Remove and replace bushes with new.
Replace shocks with new if required.
Inspect suspension bushes, & replace if cracked or perished.

This should solve the problems for you.

Sounds like it could be the CV joints, drive the car in reverse for a little and put steering on full lock, the noise will be a crunching sound coming from the front, if so then ist definitely the CV joint(constant velocity) joint, hope this helps

If you took the tire off and there is no evidence of major wear then you might have a steering knuckle bearing that's bad.They can also sound like the grinding and squealing like bad breaks.The steering knuckle is what everything is attached to.The bearing in the center of the steering knuckle for the axle shaft.

Tire sensor fault on our 2006 Ford Explorer after new tires


2006 Ford Truck Explorer
NOTE: The tire pressure sensor training prcedure must be done in an area without radio frequency (RF) noise. RF noise is generated by electrical motor and appliance operation, cell phones, and remote transmitters.

1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position
2. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position three times, ending in the RUN position. Do not wait more than two minutes between each key cycle.
3. Press and release the brake pedal
4. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.

Sequence:
1- Left Front Tire
2- Right Front Tire
3- Right Rear Tire
4- Left Rear Tire


5. Turn the ignition switch from the OFF position to the RUN position three times, ending in the RUN position. Do not wait for more than two minutes between each key cycle.
6. The horn will sound once and the TPMS indicator will flash if train mode has been entered successfully. If equipped, the message center displays "TRAIN LEFT FRONT TIRE." Place the magnet on the valve stem of the LF tire pressure sensor. The horn will sound briefly to indicate that the tire pressure sensor has been recognized by the TPMS module.
7.Within two minutes after the horn sounds, place the magnet on the valve stem of the RF tire pressure sensor. NOTE: If the TPMS module does not recognize any one of the four tire pressure sensors during the tire training procedure, the horn will sound twice and the message center (if equipped) will display "TIRE TRAINING MODE INCOMPLETE." If this occurs, the entire procedure must be repeated from Step 1.
8. Repeat Step 7 for the RR and LR tires. When the tire training procedure is complete, the horn will sound once and the message center (if equipped) will display TIRE TRAINING MODE COMPLETE.

This should help. For now, probably all Fords are like this. And I do not believe that Ford puts sensors in their spares (some GMs do).
Good luck

Noise from rear axle


You most likely have a bad wheel bearing. Jack the car up to the extent that the rear wheel is of the ground pull in and out on the top of the tire if you feel any free free play or loosness do not drive the vehicle untill you get it fixed. Check both sides as it can be dificult to determine wich side the noise is comeing from.
