Question Intermittent clunk noise and grinding

I am confused, on my 2007 4x4 F250 FX4 that has the leveling kit, I just rebuilt the motor and now I have a light grinding noise while driving and the steering drifts a tad but intermittently when I slow down usually doing about 25mph or less I get a loud clunk that you can hear and feel. What do you think this could be?

look at your carrier bearing too, grease the splines of the slip yoke on the drive shaft while you are at it (if you pull the shaft out)

Pay attention to the brake rotors inside and out for a stuck pad. My money is on the wheel bearing tho
