Front Clunk & T/C disconnect issue ... Related ?

The other day I was using my otherwise stock '02 F250 to pull out some tree from the yard.

I locked the hubs and selected 4LO (crappy electric shift T/C) and pulled out the trees with no sweat.

I noticed after selecting 2wd, it wouldn't shift out of 4Lo for quite some time.

I tried unlock the hub, driving a bit ... still nothing.

Finally a few steps in reverse in finally went back into 2wd.

A couple of days later, I have a ujoint like clunk from the front axle at full lock to lock. It never did this before, and don't see why it would if the hubs are free-wheeling.

I have a Cherokee that the front D30 is full time, with only disconnect being in T/C. Only get a shutter in 4wd on pavement.

I thought my hubs were still locked, but they are unlocked.

Besides this now, the T/C will not go back into 4LO

I wouldn't think the two are related, but ?

I just replaced the autoshift motor on a friends Navigator T/C (looks like a powerwindow motor) ... wondering if they are similar. Besides the de-pinning, it was a 5 minute job.

Thoughts ?
