Intermittent Left Pulling 02' F-250

This is a weird problem. I have noticed that roughly twice a mile my truck will pull hard to the left for a second then "release" back to my normal alignment. Mechanics around me are baffled. I have troubleshooted and remembered that I had been running with my hubs locked in for a while, roughly 8 months or so. Then maybe a month ago or less I unlocked the hubs, feeling that I wouldn't need the 4x4 much in the next few months. That and I was wondering about using the "auto" position for 4x4, I don't really understand how that works. That's when the issues started. A few days ago I locked the hubs back in and the problem has gone away. Does this seem reasonable that in the unlocked "auto" position I could feasibly have some weird locking/unlocking thing going on that wouldn't be possible with the hubs locked in?

most likely the u-joints in the front axles. One of them is probably seized.

Yep Check Front Axle U-Joints at the Hub Pivot Point.
I have a Good Thread in here where I fixed Mine.
TooMuch to Type out, Search My Threads, Tells a Good way to Prove U-Joint is Issue.
