I have a 1996 Explorer, it makes this clanking sound underneath the engine, and it gets worse when I speed up and shifts. I was considering in buying a new sway bar or sway bar link kits. But not sure as yet.

Do you
have the same problem?

Sounds as if the front shaft the Rzeppa joint at the transfer case end of the shaft (rear) is bad,
