      2010 ford explore Eddie
      2010 ford explore Eddie Bauer 4.0 V6, ok I have a sound coming from the front end, and after replacing the cv axe and hub on the right side after the abs sensor went out and replaced the hub on the driver side. I am still getting a roaring sound still. I can feel it a little in the steering wheel and a little in the food board and can hear from 5mph up to 50mph. It's like dunt-dunt-dunt-dunt-dunt and the faster I go the faster it goes dunt-dunt-dunt, can anyone help me out, I'm lost on what to replace or checked. Already rotated the tires, checked the breaks, nothing leaking, HELP

      Sounds like either wheel bearings or tires. You can try to rotate tires to eliminate those, then go from there.

      You got a 4x4 by chance? Have a real good look at that front drive shaft U-Joint when you have a second.

      I have the same sound. 2010 XLT V6 4X4... Internet searches tell me it's not wheel bearings, but no good answer on what it is.... Will be watching to see if you get it resolved....

      Not sure about the description of the sound - but after years here and personal experience:
      - If it's a 4WD then remove the front driveshaft and see if the sound goes away. It's a common diagnostic procedure at least on my 2007. If the problem goes away, then you need a new u-joint.
      - Rear bearings can also transmit vibration into the steering wheel. I just replaced a rear bearing that solved my vibration and roaring sound. Frankly, it's almost impossible to tell if it's coming from the front or the rear so don't get too caught up in that. In fact, I replaced my rear bearing to correct the roaring sound. It took care of the vibration also.
      The absolute best way to diagnose a bearing problem is to determine if it gets worse in a turn. If your noise does not get worse in a turn then a bearing is not the problem. Left turn more noise right bearing - right turn left bearing.
      Can you give us some more into like at least how many miles it has on it?
