I am just learning the intricacies of the explorer and therefore will not comment. I must correct the statement of Chrysler doing away with torsion bars in the 60's. My 1970 Road Runner had them.

Thank you! Poor wording on my part, I believe Chrysler STARTED using torsion bars in the 60s; how long they had them, don't know.

BTW, Explorer "intricacies" are actually nothing very out of the ordinary. Pretty standard Ford design technique; I really got pissed-off when Firestone insisted the Explorer rear suspension was responsible for the tires failing, and vehicle roll-over. Those Explorers had semi-elliptical leaf springs exactly like useage dating back for many decades. Pretty bullet-proof suspension for use with a solid rear axle!

Intricacies of the Explorer may be standard Ford design but they are very different than my 89 Dodge W150. I am a shade tree mechanic not a professional. This is the first Ford in my family. The only way I learn a vehicle is reading about it and hands on. Every vehicle is a little different in varying degrees and that is what I meant by intricacies. The little details that make things work.

not being a pro on this but after rebuilding a few t cases in 02 mm i beleive that the truck could roll when in park a hill because the viscous clutch land between the transmission out put shaft and the rest of the parts its the first piece you can see after the inputClick the image to open in full size. shaft

yes V8 AWD explorer if the front shaft is removed it will move in "park". i've owned my fair share of explorers. plenty of v8s.
