Question about Ford Explorer
Front wheel hub bearings are very common problems with this particular vehicle. Try jacking the vehicle with the front wheels off the ground. Check for excessive "play" as you wiggle the front wheels while holding the tire at the 9 & 3 o'clock position, then 12 & 6 o'clock position. If the movement detected is the same at both positions, replace the front wheel bearings.
Note: This test also allows you to check for worn tie rods and ball joints. Replace as needed. The droning sound points to bad bearings, though.
