RE: Clicking noise coming from front end-98
I own a 1998 Eddie Bauer Ford Explorer and I have the same exact problem that you do. I have had for a few months now and done some research and this is what I have found out: 1. It is not a wheel bearing on the front end, because I have checked mine and they are as good as new. 2. If you have the same problem that I have, you will actually feel the "clickling" on your steering wheel, especially if you're driving less than 5 mph. 3. From what I have read, it seems to me that it would pinions or the u-joints. Unfortunately, I have not found the cause. One thing, if you push the front end of your explorer up and down you will actually hear the same noise, unfortunately, you need someone else there to try to help you out. Hopefully we can figure this out together because that clicking has become a little annoyance and a safety concern. Please do get in touch with me if you figure out what this problem is - I will make sure to do the same.
