Re: 2002 Explorer Sport front end whistle
I would definitely get a second opinion, never trust one shop. It is cause for concern. But I wouldn't think it was too terribly serious at this point. I would have the bearings checked out and repacked for starters. Something a lot of people don't do very often. If you don't use four wheel drive much it is recommended to run it in four wheel drive every so often to keep things loose and lubed up good. A parking lot or back road would work. Lock it in and drive a straight line, then back it up. Straight line because its on pavement. Thats all it takes. I would have this checked out before making a trip. Let a local shop gouge you a little now before an unknown shop + wrecker gouges you a lot. Have a nice trip!
I love it when people do things right
Unfortunetly I dont always do that lol
