Front end howling

IT is difficult to describe but it seems like when i hit a bump the front end will howl. Sometimes just for a second and sometimes for a long time even a few miles. I checked jacked it up and the wheel seemed tight when i shook it. The only thing i could find wrong was the tie rod from the steering box to the other tie rod has bad ends on it but i doubt that would cause the loud noise i am getting. I recently bought a beater car to drive when im not pulling cuz i cant afford 4 dollar diesel all the time but i need to get this fixed because i do use the truck quite a bit.

Thanks
Sean

It almost sounds like the tire is rubbing on the frame kind of. It actually sounds like a coyote howling. Its not easy to describe a sound but thats the best i can say. And ya no play at 12 and 6 or 3 and 9

Possibly bad bearing assemblies . Mine kinda did the same thing . Would hit a bump and kinda get a howling sound that would go away after a few miles . As it got worse it stayed longer and finally just wouldn't go away . Lock the hubs (don't engage 4x4) and drive it a few miles and see if you still get the noise . It would go away on my truck with the hubs locked .

I have the same problem on my 04 250. It is on the drivers side. The on the fly locking hub does not work and will not hold vac. When is starts to make that noise I turn on the 4 wheel drive and it goes away. A bad axle bearing in the hub or hub bearing?
