  • Power comes from a 6.0 L LQ9 V8 taken from a Cadillac Escalade which makes 400-450 horsepower. Behind the engine sits a T-56 six-speed manual transmission and a 1998 Ford Explorer rear end with 4:10 gears. The front suspension is a collage of different part such as Ford Explorer ball joints and a 2004 Mustang steering rack. The rear suspension is a custom truck arm system built by Andrew. The wagon stops thanks to disc brakes all around from a 2004 Mustang.

    The Ford Explorer contains ball joints connecting each of its four wheels to the steering linkage underneath the vehicle. These ball joints act in a similar way to your knee or elbow, allowing your Explorer to turn the wheels and steer the vehicle smoothly. If the ball joints break, you should replace them immediately as you will not be able to operate the Explorer without them. Replacing the ball joints is a time-consuming process and you should expect to spend close to two hours on the task.

  • 1997 Ford Explorer lower ball joints on Explorer, both sides, left and right, had a clunk when going over dips in road. Ford did not find the problem. The problem was there from new, I have 57,000 miles on the Explorer. The problem was found at firestone when rotating the tires and getting ready for a front end alinement. I was told that the ball joints were bad on both sides . Nothing has been done. I talked to Ford, they say the warranty is gone and will do nothing, but will turn it over to the engineers.
