Front end Knocking?

Well as the title says. I plowed with my mason dump this weekend and all the sudden this keeps on happening more often. Every time when i turn left i hear a knocking right under the floor and i can actually feel it. Does it maybe once or twice going right but mostly everytime i go left. It did it off and on before i plowed but now its constant! Its already going in for a seal on the front axle, its leaking right where the driveshaft mounts to the pumpkin on the front axle. Its pissing out axle fluid...


Let me know what you think!


Thanks, Tom

Does it only do it when your hubs are locked?
