F450 Front Differential Problem

I bought a 2008 F450 4x4 about eight months ago. I clicked 4 wheel drive on for two seconds to make sure it worked. I haven't needed 4WD until the past week when it started snowing here. It will not engage 4WD unelss the truck is at a complete stop........once it is in four wheel drive it chirps the front tires. Long story short, it has 4.30 gears in the rear and a 4.88 front differential. I have no idea how or when this happened. The truck doesn't have any signs of ever being in an accident and Oasis says it came with 4.30 gears. I either need a complete front diff assembly with 4.30 gears or I need to know where to get a ring and pinion for the axle I have. I think that this truck is supposed to have a Dana Super 60 reverse rotation. I have looked online for 4.30 gears, and can only find 4.10 and 4.88. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

It definitely isn't working fine. You can only drive it about 2 miles an hour since one axle is spinning faster than the other........not to mention the transfer case will probably explode if I drive it down the highway
