I just bought this Explorer in August of 2011. I have never had this much trouble with a SUV. I had family member change the brakes on all 4 wheels as the were squealing. As he was changing the rear pads he noticed the spring was broken. I don't go off roading or anything like that, so how on earth could the rear spring break? I hate this SUV. I still owe a lot of money on this car.. I can't keep repairing daily!!
Both rear springs broke - I couldn't believe it, less than 75,000 miles and they have been broken for some time judging from all the rust. I couldn't tell it from driving it, I mean it has always ridden like a truck more than a car. Goodyear found the problem when rotating tires for me. I decided to use after-market parts instead of Ford parts as I understand Ford has had many issues with springs. Clearly these parts are defective. Previously I had always gone to a Ford dealership for service, and probably still would have if the one close to me had not closed. I have to say I love my Explorer and mean to keep it a long time, but this was a huge surprise because I don't off-road with it.

I went in for some new tires and brakes, came out with a repair estimate that stated that the right rear spring is broken. Their solution is 2 quick springs (can't just replace one because the car will sit crooked). I have not yet repaired this, however I have to do it soon, as you can't align the tires with this issue.
