Great site so far. Got a 1995 Explorer I bought 10 years ago, got less than 70,000 original miles . Hoping to get some help with my steering wheel shaking at 50 mph. I just had the front brakes done about month ago. This was the first time I took it on the freeway since having the brakes done and that's when the shaking started . Any input would be appreciated .

When they did the brakes did they put new break rotors on if not your rotors could have gotten warped

I had a 1994 Explorer 4 Door with 4WD, so they may be similar. During that timeframe it was early years for explorer and my car was in perfect condition but the car shook at highway speeds and it would create patches and cups on the tires. Ford was aware of it and released a service bulletin which to my memory affected suspension components, body bushings and even motor mounts. The issue was a harmonic vibration.
If you are old enough you may remember video of SUVs like explorers having tire explosions and flipping over at 70 MPH. Ford blamed the firestone tires but I replaced my tires with Goodyear and did same.
Since the recommended fix was a Ford Service Bulletin and not a recall it was an expensive fix at owner's expense.
I am not sure if your car is affected by the issues I had, but you might check with Ford Service Writer at the dealer and see if it applies. Good luck and be careful with that vibration.
