4x4 help needed

96 F350, cc lb

I locked the hubs and put the truck into 4high yesterday and when I put it into drive it made a real loud clunk noise that did not stop. I attached some pic's of the part I found on the ground under the truck. It appears to be some type of bearing. What is and what do I need to do?

Thanks

^x2 absolutely. Time to rebuild the U-Joint. Might as well do both sides to keep the mileage the same.

Common issue in an old 4x4. You need new u-joints. The axle shafts themselves are quite tough, but check to make sure you didn't damage an ear.

You are all correct. It is the rear ( front driveshaft ) u-joint cup. Does anybody know what size bolts hold are needed for the u joint housing? I see there are supposed to be 4 bolts but mine no longer exist. Any write ups on the fix? Thanks

Thanks for all the help. After stripping a bolt on the cross member and while on my back in the snow/sand/mud mix that is my driveway, I have decided to let my trusty mechanic deal with it. I really need a garage!
