Re: 02 ford explorer 4x4, loud noise from the front
You can check the wheel bearings yourself by lifting the tire 2" off the ground, put one hand at the top and one hand below the wheel and rock it towards you. If it moves you know that that bearing has play and should be replaced. You can also check the CV joints and make sure everything under the front end is secure.
