To answer to your questions, can you take your explorer to an empty parking place, do not engage 4x4, turn the steering to the right full stop(untill steering stop turning) and drive in cercle: notice if any noise.
Do the same, but now to the left, drive in full circle with steering to the stop, notice if any noise.
Drive straight and brake suddently, notice if any noise.
Next, drive at higher speed, (do not get ticket) notice if any noise.
Do not engage 4x4, drive back to the pavement, raugh road. Notice any any noise.
Try to pull a load, or climb a hill, notice if noise.
Get back with what you find, because can be tricky to diagnose.
