clunk/rubbing sound only when making sharp turns

my truck is a 04 f350 and i have noticed in the last little while that whenever i make sharp right or left turns it feels like the tire is rubbing (verified it is not) but it only seems to be on the drivers side no sounds no vibrations when driving, just feels like the tire rubs. could it possibly be the u joint binding? have seen other posts in regards to matters like this but none in my particular situation.

Ya man, im having that same issue and i got under my truck and wiggled my shafts and they were defiantly out. They are not that hard to do but you do need that axle seal driver that is required for the fords.... i priced out the moogs for mine and they are like $93.68 for both but thats not including my military discount. so they will probably be a little cheaper. the seals your gonna need is the axle dust seal, The o-ring on the wheel bearing and the vacuum hub seal. those total around........ like $70 but im just guessing.... could be cheaper..

Do a search for New Ball Joint Time. Squirtgun in that thread has a great link on a writeup which shows how to make a seal replacement tool for like $5. It also has part #'s, & step by step instructions. I was able to rebuild both sides of my F350, ball joints, seals, & u - joints, saved a lot of money too.

P.S. I'm sorry I don't know how to post the link hehe.
