    Hi all, i have a 1997 4.0 explorer, if i turn the wheel to a right hand lock, when i get near full lock i get a groaning noise from the steering, if i rock the steering wheel it does it a few times then stops, but it does it when moving away on a turn but only at slow speeds and doesn't do it in reverse,
    I hope some one can give me some advice i have checked the PS fluid lvl and is ok and there are no leaks, also i can't feel any play in the steering or ball joints.

    Thanks Nathan

    P.S. Great forum here

    i dont suppose anyone might have an idea replaced the antiroll bar bushes and drop links today, will see what happens after that as they were knackered.

    any advice would be appricated.

    thanks Nathan
