noise when 4wd is engaged

I have done some reading and searching on the forum and can't find a post with the same issue or symptoms so here goes:

I have a 2006 f350 4wd with the ESOF system.

When I put the truck in 4wd I hear a tin clanking noise from the passenger side front wheel area. I have noticed it before and the problem goes away when I take it out of 4wd and back up about 30 feet or so.

I have also noticed when I get out to move the lockers from auto to locked that the passenger side takes a lot more effort to turn then the drivers side.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance

Probably need to pull the hubs apart and inspect and service them. Might have a broken part on the noisy side, or the internals are just really dry.

My 01 does the same thing, still haven't been able to track it down. Checked hubs, bearings and cv's. Only thing I'vefound is my inner hub seal and outer axle seal are way past needing replacement. I think it maybe causing to much pressureon the outer "none serviceable" bearing, only thing i haven't had time to check.

Thanks. I will check the hubs first.
Truck has a little over 82,000 miles on it and is all stock.
How long do the hubs usually last?
