FRONT END NOISE AND REAR END LEAK!

OK just bought my truck 3 days ago and noticed a weird sound when I hit bumps in the front end like maybe a ball joint is bad, Its like a loose sound when you hit decent bumps. I'm going to kill two birds in this thread cause I need this answered as soon as possible. My other problem is that there is a pinion seal leak in the rear and im hearing tomorrow if 30 day warranty can take care of that since they sold me a truck with leaks and ****. Me and my father just bit the bullet and bought this 6.0 so fast didn't get to research to much.
thanks guys

The front is most likely ball joints. Sounds more like a clunk when you hit a bump. Try jacking up the front end so the tires are off the groundan inch or two. Use a pry bar under the tire and pry up and let it down. If there's play in the wheel, it's most likely a ball joint. Dont mistake it for suspension play.

There's a chance it could be a bearing also.
