OK, my first thread. My '97 Ford Explorer XLT 4WD, 4.0l, SOHC is driving me crazy. I've changed the front shocks, front sway bar links, rear shocks, rear bushings on the stabilizer bar and replaced the rear sway bar links. However, when I go over a pothole or manhole cover or anything that is not smooth in the road, the vehicle sounds like it wants to fall apart and I know that's not normal. Any suggestions for a smoother ride? Thanks.
