I have a 2003 Ford Explorer 4WD.
I’m getting a rhythmic thumping sound from the drivers side area. It’s pace is dependent on the acceleration. It’s also worse when the steering wheel is turned.
I just replaced all the tires and had an alignment.
I took it to a shop and the tech said it was a rear radius.
I’m not 100% sure what that is or if it could even cause this issue. They are looking to charge ALOT for it so just wanted to get some advice and help before spending the $. Thanks for the help. I appreciate it.

I would rotate the tires first and see if the noise moves. If not that will rule out the wheels and tires and point to a mechanical issue. But for something to get worse with speed tells me it's some that is rotating like tires/wheels, axle, brakes, etc.
