2005 Ford Explorer
For a few months now my husband and I have been trying to figure out what's wrong with my car. It's a 2005 explorer rear wheel drive advanced track rsc. I drove it round trip 300 miles about a month ago and the entire trip the car vibrated like crazy so we took it to the shop and they replaced all the u-joints. Before that all my tires had been rotated and balanced TWICE. The vibrating has gotten better but still vibrates at 75mph or more. My main problem is trying to figure out what the grinding noise is coming from the drivers side tire when I turn sharp to the right. It doesn't happen all the time, but is happening more often. My husbands buddy thinks it's the wheel bearing but my mechanic swears it isn't. Any ideas? It's driving me crazy

side note: I also had the driveline realigned as well
 






It's the bearing, it's always the bearing. Search on this site and you'll see plenty of info on it.
