I have the same thing happening to me. I just replaced the driverside wheel hub assembly (bearing went bad) and now I got this binding/clinking noise coming from the front end. Only hear it when I hit a bump and can feel a slight tapping under the floor board but it only last a second or two. My hubs came with the truck but they are hard to turn (have to use a wide mouth visegrip to turn them) do you think that its just a problem with the locking hubs? I will say when I locked them in I heard the noise nonstop but I don't know much about the 4x4 system.

Also is the truck safe to drive like this until I can get new ones? I have checked the universals while the truck was in neutral and everything felt tight and the front end felt tight when I jacked it up... I am baffled.

As long as I leave the hubs in Auto it seems to happen only once in a while of if I hit a bad bump. Is there anyway to check to see if is the hubs? I know I can pop them out, I wonder if I can ride around in the yard without them in to see if the noise stop? I hate asking stupid questions but I'm new to these 4x4 trucks. Thanks again for the info.

Should be able to.

Jack the truck up and support under the axle. Then using a prybar or pipe, slide under the tire and pry upward. This check is for both hub bearings (wheel bearing) and ball joints. It works better with two people. One does the prying and one lays under the truck to watch which joint is moving.

I jacked the truck up and both wheels were tight, no play. Rechecked everything underneath with a large flat blade screwdriver and a prybar and can't find nothing loose. Put truck in neutral and checked the universals both rear and front driveshaft and the ones for the front wheels and everything seems good. I guess I will be shopping for new hubs. Thanks guys. Sorry for hijacking your post hobagger.
