Front wheel hubs

Well I have 2006 f350 it has the manuel shifter for 4wd and the oem style hubs the other day I started to get a grinding noise so I crawled user the truck found I had the hubs locked not sure for how long. But now with the hubs unlocked the noise doesn't occur so much and has some vibration when driving down a bumpy road. Well I crawled under it again checked my u joints on the axles and greased them I put I pry bar between the knuckle of the axle and lower ball joint and it seems to be able to move up and down on both sides not sure if this is normal but hoping someone out there knows before I try to tackle this job.

the grinding sounds like those u joints in the front end

verify the manual hubs are actually releasing by grabbing the u joint inside the knuckle and turning by hand

as far as Ball joints how many miles on them .. but moment isn't usually good
