I have a 2000 Ford Explorer XLT and I have been having problems with it. Well first (this was on 2/18/16) I went to go get an alignment done for i, t but the mechanic said I couldn't get one because I need an inner tie rod for for the front wheel on the driver side. Once he fixed it for me, he tried to do the alignment again only this time I could only get a partial alignment because this time he says my sway bar links are bad. Okay I didn't have all the money to get that fixed so I asked was it okay for me to drive it until next week? He said it should be fine. So about a week later, I was driving and I start to hear this real bad scrubbing sound coming from the drivers side, I didn't pay it no mind because I thought it was doing it because the inner tie rod. Last night it starting scrubbing real bad and I notice there was some oil on my rim and when I started driving it again to try to make it home, I felt the truck shifting sideways on its own and I saw some smoke. The ABS light came on and it was scrubbing louder and I can feel some clanking under my feet on the drivers side I thought it needed some brake fluid, but it was full and when I got to work this morning one of my co workers said he heard some clanking and scrubbing too and when we looked at the tire, it was leaning inward. Do you think that has something to do with my brake light being on? It's kind of hard to stop now also. Please help me.
have the same problem?
