When I had this problem on my 99 Explorer, one of the bolts for the sway bar was broken. It is a relatively easy inexpensive fix.

It could be bad wheel bearings, cv joint or ball joints try turning your wheels all the way to the left and accelrerate forward then try the same with your wheels all the way to the right and if you hear it it's your cv joints,or grasp your wheels top and bottom and see if theres any play or any noise if there is it's either your wheeel bearings or your ball joints

Whining noise is probably in one of the pulleys or belts. Probably the power steering. And the popping is probably CV axles.

Wineding sound from the wheels


the scallop is probably your noise. that or a wheel bearing. scalloping is either caused by bad shocks or poor alignment. should have front end checked out and alignment performed. good luck!

Creaking noise in front end 1997 explorer


Sounds like it is your CV axles.  Turn the wheel one direction, right or left, and check just behind the wheels to see if your CV boot is cracked or ripped (the boot is a black, rubber accordion looking thing).  If it is cracked or ripped, I would say that is definitely the problem.
