Opinions needed on vibration when turning my ford explorer 2002

Hello all,

I have a 2002 Ford Explorer with 52,000 miles in it. It has the 4.0 v6,
the towing package and automatic 4x4.

When I make a turn to the right or left at slow speeds there is a
substantial vibration when accelerating. If I make the same turn
without accelerating there is no (or very little) vibration. It only
happens when the turn is more than a few degrees. Turns made at any
substantial speeds do not cause this vibration, I suspect because I
never turn sharply when at high speeds.

Examples of when it is felt
Turning at an intersection. (with acceleration)
Pulling out of a parking space
accelerating on entrance/exit ramps.

Before you suggest it. I am NOT turning too sharply. These are normal
turns. In fact if I turn very sharply there is NO vibration.

I am not a mechanic and just do not want to get ripped off. Any
suggestions what type of mechanic I should take it to? General,
Transmission, Dealer, etc?

Any suggestions on the cause of this issue?

Thanks
Brad

Tires? Mine did that for a while with new tires.

it????????

My '92 did that when the rear diff fluid was low. New oil and friction
modifier and it's fine now.
