Sport Trac 2001
Hi to all, I'm an Englishman living in the Philippines, currently owning two Ford 4X4 pick-ups. Ford Explorer Sport Trac that I opurchased about six months ago, but never had so many problems with avehicle in my life. After rebuilding all the front suspension with Ford parts, I have a noise coming from the front Drivers side wheel whilst i'm acclerating and driving around 30 to 40Km per hr.
List of replaced parts:-
Up suspension arm ball joint both sides
lower ball joint both sides
front wheel bearing hubs both sides
Lower arm inner rubber bushings
Stabilizer Link bolt

The noise sounds like a gratting whilst driving, reason for the change of all the parts was the local guy here thought he could drive a car without replacing the Broken stabilizer link, but caused so much damage. My thoughts are focus on the CV joint may have been damaged due to the Wheel wobble wilst driving around with the broken Stabilizer Link Bolt. Or fingers crossed not the front axle??
I'm not sure if anybody has experienced this before but never buy a second hand vehicle from a filippino, as they always find the money to buy such a nice vehicle but dont think they have to repair or service these vehicles.
regards
Manila Kev

Hi Kev,

I currently looking to replace my front bearings on my sporttrac, also here in manila, Out of interest can you remember what you paid for the bearing hubs? I have quite a bit of noise from the left front wheel while driving above 60kph.

Thanks


Lee

Hi Lee,

I have had problems myself so your not on your own.

Best regards
