    sorry guys, if you have caught any of my recent threads, my front diff recently went bad. It is making a horrible and loud "whinning" noise...almost as if I had really aggressive Super Swamper tires. (I am running all-terrains) So I am probably not going to make it until I get my front diff...

    Front end noise--PLEASE HELP

    I have not lookied into my driveshaft yet. The floor beneath my feet while driving 50-65mph does vibrate a little and may be the driveshaft. I didn't know that a driveshaft had a CV joint....i'll have to take a look later. Any other suggestions would be helpful just to elimate the areas that...

    Front end noise--PLEASE HELP

    My 1997 Explorer control-trac 4x4 just this past Monday started to make an unusual noise. This noise only happens while moving and matches the speed I am driving. The only way I can describe the noise sounds as if I have really agressive tires rolling on the Super Swampers...
