Change the struts as soon as you can, it will wear ties uneven and steering will be affected. Dont drive at high speeds until the repair has been completed.

O/D light flashing indicates a fault with the transmission. It needs to be checked by an experienced mechanic.

O/D flashing is usually your trans fluid is overheating or there is a transmission fault. How is the fluid and level? I'd get the vehicle looked at ASAP, you might be slowly burning it up if it isn't already. BTW: Ford isn't known for robust transmissions.

Ford has some very good transmissions, but the early 2000 Explorers are not so good.
