noise while turning short

Hey i was test driving a truck today and while turning short, right or left, it sounds like the tires are rubbing. The tires are not rubbing. 4x4 f250 2005. The only thing i can think of if the front hubs were lock in on manuel, not auto, so were they maken the noise. Visually glancing under the truck in the balljoint area there is noting obviously wrong, so what do i need to look at on monday when i go back to negotiate the final price?

So how do i test if the auto hubs work? Park facing downhill on a slope put it in 4hi and the reverse: if only the rears spin the autos dont work, then see if the manuel still works.
As for aftermarket hubs, ive read waren, but do they have auto lockers, im lazy and only want to flip a button.

What was the tech service bul... on the front wheel bearing about?

I had a lockout that ate itself up and I had a shimmy at speed and it did the same thing during tight turns...

How many miles are on the truck you are looking at. I'm at 170xxx and I know that my driver side is going out. But I'm going to go with dynatech for my hubs and ball joints I had some friends that used there products.

my truck has 108k. zero play in the hubs. just a pair of lockouts that had probably never been in 4wd and certainly never serviced! LOL

well as for now,im not concerned with it. Everything appears, and feels fine. The hubs work. When i was droppen of salt i noticed it was doing it alot more when i turn and drive over the sand ridge along the roads while braking.

Flushed out fords gold antifreeze today. Never really got much funk to come out (which is good), while draining the antifreeze or while draining the other 10 times with the cleaners. Simple process just takes all day.

Hey on this truck, the ficm has written on it: new 02-15-11. on it, meaning it failed and the previous owner replaced it or he replaced it because i dont have a cat or egr? Or a combo if the two?
