Issue with truck...watch video.

Link to problem... YouTube - F350 4x4 issue with front end when turning in 4x4

2000 F350 PSD CC 4x4.

When the hubs are locked in and the front u-joint is turning at full lock left or right I start getting some clunking like the u joint is bad, but the u joint is brand new. In the video you can see the u joint "jerking" the akle, steering linkage and even some movement at the tranny.

What should i do?

Is this your first 4wd truck?

What you're seeing is the limit of the U-Joint ability to run smoothly at such a severe angle. Completely Normal, 4wd trucks have been doing this since their beginning.

4wd cars and lesser trucks can use different types of CV joints that might not give you that feeling but, you're driving a Real Truck now!
