Question about 1996 Ford Explorer
When i accelerate from 30 mph my ford explorer is making a harmonic noise and it gets louder as I speed up but it stops instantly as soon as i let off the gas. I changed out the cv axles and the wheel bearings and its still making the noise. there is no shimmy from the front end so what is going on?

SOURCE: noise in front end, sounds
You say the rear wheel axles and bearings have been replaced, you mention nothing of the front wheels, you have the symptoms of a front wheel bearing being worn out, remove them and check for pitting in the bearing rollers or the bearing races, I am sure you will find a problem. Hope this helps solve your issue with the bearing noise.

It sounds to me like the explorer has a bad hub bearing up front.I would have this checked out especially if one has become loose.The hub bearing take the place of what use to be wheel bearings:)
