Hello,

I have noticed on my mountaineer (AWD-V8-117k) that sometimes when I accelerate. Mostly going 35 mph+ I get a "slight" jerk that sounds like it may be coming from the rear end. It only happens intermittently when I let off the gas, then press on it. The car shifts just fine so not a tranny issue but what about the rear differential? Is it typical or normal? Or could the fluid be bad causing this? Like I said, it's not like it SLAMS but there's that slight jerk I can feel.

Do you
have the same problem?

Also, one more question.I am having the upper control arms replaced on the vehicle. Will this require an alignment? My mechanic's book said only 91-94 ford explorers require it after replacing upper CA.
