Tire Kick?

Ok got a question. I have a 99 f250 cc that has started making this weird noise when turning. I live in a cul-de-sac and when I am turning around it, it sounds like the tires are kicking or knocking from side to side. I am not to sure as to what it is. Been leaning towards sway bar bushings being bad or something is up with the steering gear. Anybody have any insight as to what I am talking about? Oh and to add to this: new ball joints and it only makes the noise when I cut the wheel sharp. I can turn without making this noise when I am on the road it is only when the wheel is cut pretty sharp.

Yes it is a 4x4 but I haven't used it in awhile. Will have to check that out too. I was thinking sway bar bushings because when I was under the truck the other day, they looked pretty tore up and I figured that is where the noise might be coming from.

I would try just putting the truck in the air and turning the front wheels to see if everything up there is turning or not. That is why i dont leave my hubs locked,it feels awful in the front end when you turn sharp vs being unlocked.

Sold 01 350 6" on 37's and mild mods, 00 X 4" on 35's, 02 f350 4" 35's molded from fan to drive shaft, ridin the 03 with nose conversion with 125k and counting upwards slowly.
Never had CNC on any of it, never will.
Take 3/4 of the info and recommendations on here with a grain of salt
