2002 Ford Explorer Sport
Hello guys and gals...

I've inherited a 2002 Explorer Sport with fairly low miles but in need of some TLC... so here I find myself in hope of finding the correct way of doing things.

I know my way around a tool kit and have previous experience of many European Ford and GM products - mainly MkII Escorts and Opel/Vauxhall Cavaliers and have done all sorts of mod work... from engine rebuilds to suspensions etc...

I don't want to go too mad on it but would like to start with tires, brakes and suspension... I tend to ask a lot of dumb*ss questions to start but hope I will be able to share my experience as I have done on other technical forums...

Thanks for having me aboard! :D :D
