welcome well i would buy ford hub bearings assembly youll pay more but they last! use 90w oil and oil up your hubs the auto isnt working cause more than likly you have a vacume leak. so i would start there. but it sounds like you need a axle seal with all that saft play
- if you jack up the front of your truck. grab the wheel (tire) top and botttom try to shake it and see if it has play in it if so you hub assembly is bad

Thanks for the quick reply. I have jacked both sides up and i have no play in the wheels at all. That is why i am a bit confused.
