    Welcome Brian. Make sure the calipers, & the caliper mounts are tight. The next time when you are going over bumps & you hear the noise step lightly on the brakes & see if the noise goes away, it could also be a brake pad rattling if the anti rattle clip is broken. You could also have someone push up & down on the front of the truck & listen to see if you hear any noise.

    Check any heats shields on the exhaust system to see if anything is loose. Broken welds on the catalytic converter heat shield was common on earlier Explorers. The noise was most evident when hitting sharp bumps.

    There are several threads on this topic. This thread may give you an idea or two:

    Symptoms of bad front strut bearings?

    My first guess would have been strut bearing mounts on either the left or right side without knowing much information. Again the the thread may help you diagnose your problem.
