Designated to take over for the Bronco II, the Ford Explorer ended up taking over the entire segment. The legendary SUV premiered in 1990 based on the Ranger with both a four-door and two-door body style. For the first generation, it was equipped with a 4.0L V6 engine capable of around 155 horsepower and came in two trim levels, the XLS and XLT. 1992 welcomed in the arrival of the Eddie Bauer edition, which featured a more upscale interior with the unique accessories and special badging but the Limited, which debuted for 1993, took it a step forward with such Ford Explorer parts as automatic headlights, fog lamps, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a front-end grille painted to match the vehicle's body. Horsepower was elevated slightly for the Eddie Bauer and Limited models, but not by much. Also in 1993, antilock brakes became standard on all versions of the Explorer. Another variant, the Explorer Sport, was offered in both rear- and four-wheel drive and was also marketed as the Mazda Navajo.

The second generation of the Ford Explorer rolled off the line for 1995. Trim levels were virtually the same, with the XL, XLT, Eddie Bauer, and Limited. The two-door Sport was also still available. Three engine configurations were offered. Standard was a 4.0L V6 similar to the first generation, which in 1997 was upgraded to an optional V6 with 210 horsepower or a 5.0L V8 capable of the same. Also in 1997, the Eddie Bauer and Limited models were equipped with all-wheel drive. In 2001, the Explorer Sport Trac was introduced, showing off a small truck bed matched to the four-door SUV body. In 2002, the Explorer parts were given a redesign, with Ford installing independent rear suspension and offering a 4.6L V8. A third row seat also was thrown into the mix, allowing for seven passengers. Several other updates to the Ford Explorer parts took place over the next few years, with another redesign of the accessories coming in 2006 that saw the addition of a heftier 24-valve V8.

More recently, the Explorer has been the beneficiary of added technology such as the Sync music interface and GPS navigation. The model has always been known as a strong seller, as it averaged over 345,000 units sold per year from 1999 to 2006 with the high being 445,157 in 2000. As for awards, the Ford Explorer has received its more than its fair share of industry praise. It has been a Consumer Guide Recommended Buy, Consumer Guide Best Buy, and an Automobile Magazine Reader's Choice All-Star (1998). The model was also named one of Motor Trend magazine's Top Ten Sport Utility Vehicles (1999) as well as an Edmunds.com Most Wanted SUV (2004) and MotorWeek's 2006 Drivers' Choice Award recipient.

Not Simple Bolt in Product.
Upper mounting bolts larger diameter than OEM strut mounts so towers had to be drilled out to accommodate same. Several manufacturing welds interfered with mounting nuts. Washer nuts provided have too large bases to fit; had to use common locknut with washer to make them fit. Try actually installing this product and see what I mean. These are not a simple bolt in product.
