Check each tire for a slipped belt or turning "out of round" a slipped belt will cause shaking in the entire vehicle at hiway speeds and a gentle shake at lower speeds..roll down the window and listen for a funny sound coming from the tires.. also check front end alignment, if toed in too far, front end tends to "trip" on itself.. if toed out too far it will be hard to hold from side to side..does the steering wheel shimmy (shake ) or entire car..please repost..

This is a catch 22 question as without a drive its practicaly impossible to say ,could be brake disks ,track rod end/ upper or lower ball joints /front drive shafts ,would need to lift vehicle on a four poster and have a good look and a pull and push with a crowbar to even have a slight inclining of what could be wrong so i advise you ask a local mechanic to have a good look for you .

Was driveshaft new & balanced? If so, and tires & wheels are balanced & "TRUE" (not bent) you might have a wheel bearing going bad.

Hello, I see you may a lot of changes and replaced a lot of parts. We leased an Explorer the same Year as yours. In our case there was a slight noise as well as vibration. The problem was the Front Hub bearings, They were bad at 18000 miles.

There are a few things I want to suggest. The spinning of the wheels on the lift will not load the bearings. A Dyno table can get everything turning with a load on it. As your vehicle is a 4x4, most Dyno's were 2 wheelers. You would have to call to find one for a 4x4.

Next, if the new Hubs do not help, have a look at the rotors. They are also balanced. You can spin balance the Wheel and rotor as a unit with a floor motor. It's not the best way to Balance because tire rotation or even shifting the Wheel on the lugs will UNbalance it. But this method CAN pinpoint a problem if a Balanced tire does not spin true when bolted to the vehicle. You will know the Rotor is off-balance and which axle is causing the problem.

Would be interested to see a Post of what you found.

there are several things, tire balance, tire pressure and alignment, check and make sure your tire pressure is correct, have the tires balanced, and get a front end alignment, this should resolve your issue, Good Luck!

The truck vibrates when turning


You could have a bad wheel bearing or out of balance front tire. Without the trailer if you go on a curve the outside tire spins slightly faster than the inside. If you notice more vibration going left, then the right tire is the outside tire.
