Front end noises

Ok, so I have brand new Rancho RS5000's in the front, have replaced the sway bar end links and have tightened up everything else, but still have a pretty good sized clunk in the front end. Today I was driving in a strait line on dry road and engaged 4wd. I didn't hear any clunking, but did hear a groaning/slight grinding sound which leads me to believe that my hubs are going out. Am I correct in this assumption?

no, it was both under (light) power and decel. It was kind of a growling and it only came from the drivers front as best as I can tell

Sway bar bushings. Your noise in 4wd I would check the joints in the front driveshaft.
