rotational noise only in 4wd

1996 f350 has auto hubs and I get a rotational noise from the drivers side real bad only in 4wd and seems to almost go away on deceleration. Last season I thought is may be coming from both sides but this year is worse, and only seems to be coming from the drivers side. Any ideas? Does something go wrong with the auto hubs?

Hubs go bad all the time, U-joints seize up or just fail completely, Gears in differential can go bad, etc. Driving it making noises does NOT make them go away

It appears that the ujoints are the original ones. I will pull the driveshaft out and check the ujoints. Just wondering if anyone has had similar problems and found out it was a certain thing, maybe save some time.

Anything that spins WILL wear out. YOU just have to pinpoint what it is

Q&D u-joint test - put it back in 2HI, park it with the wheels perfectly straight. Try to turn each axle shaft by hand. Then turn the steering a bit and try the same. If it binds on the second try, the outer u-joint is a prime suspect.
