02 psd 4wd issues

hey there, i just recently picked up my my 02 f350 auto 4x4 nice truck but i am having problems with the 4wd when i put it in 4wd there is a shake and when i turn to the left the truck clunks and steering wheel feels like it moves with it i did have a look at the truck today checked the u joints and hubs everything seems to be fine aside from the tie rod that froms right off the pitman arm seems abit worth aswell as the other one that joins into the sleeve. steering linkages i think these are called correct me if im wrong is this my problem? i have no play in my steering really yet there just on the verg of needing to be replacing its looking like? i also jacked the front tires up checked for play. wheel bearings also seem to be in good shape.

thanks in advance for your suggestions

Try retyping or editing your first post.
having a hard time understanding what your talking about.

Are you driving in 4x4 on dry ground? This will cause some of those symptoms.

Sounds like it might be in the hub.
just a guess.
I would try manually locking them in and see if it changes anything.

Also, did you check the front driveshaft u-joints?

Check those and give feedback. This seems like it will be a process of elimination.
