2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac - front wheel thumping

Have thumping noise from front wheel. Everything new brakes, etc. alignment., tires look really good. Cannot figure this out. Truck has 126,000 mi. Ford wants $85 to tell me what is wrong.

Of course they do , people should not be expected to work for free. You could move the tires around ( like in rotate ) and see if the noise moves . Just because the tires look good means nothing.
