popping noise while turning sharply only in 4x4
i have a 2012 f350 with only about 6000 miles on it. I only used 4x4 twice now, and noticed when turning left or right sharply there is a popping noise coming from the left front tire area only. It doesn't make it when you turn really slow, but when you press the gas the noise definitely gets way louder. To me it sounds like the joints in the yoke are loose (that type of noise) but it definately made me turn 4x4 off incase something were to break. No this noise is not the tires "skipping" it makes this noise in snow.
I took the truck into a truck center that does warranty work, and they heard the noise and even said it definitely sounds abnormal and something isn't right. So i left it there and they worked on it for 4 hours and couldn't find anything wrong. They then said they test drove another same year superduty and that one makes the same type of noise and it must be normal!! To me this just sounds highly unlikely that the truck should make any noise like this. I then asked how come the noise only comes from the drivers side, and not the passenger's side. They didn't have an answer for that.
So i figured i'd post on here to see if anyone else gets this noise? I was thinking of taking it to the actual ford dealership for a second opinion but it worries me because i'm deleted/tuned and i hate for them to put a red flag in the computer system on my warranty.
