    Just purchase a 2001 Explorer xlt and the front end creaks/pops after driving it several miles. You can feel the popping in the steering but not really annoying yet. Got grease fittings on lower ball joints. Is there something else I need to be looking for grease etc...? Shocks look like they need replacing and that was where I was going next. Also replaced stabilizer links as one was broken. The popping is more prominent turning to the left.

    I had the same issue and it turned out being the wheel bearing; easy fix.
