Cool please help, mysterious noise

hi, I own a 2001 f250 7.3 superduy. I've had it about a week and I've been noticing a small rubbing noise when I turn right. My first instinct was to grease the ball joints. I did so and there was no improvement. Nothing appears to be broken or rubbing. How would I be able to find out if it's a ball joint or possibly my hub?

Jack it up, one side at a time and watch all components as you have a buddy try and move the tire up and down then side to side. You will be looking for movement in your steering linkage and ball joints.

What size tires and lift etc??

8" Skyjacker lift
2" wheel spacers
22" American Racing rims
40x15.5x22 M16's
DIY intake

4" strait exaust
Glowshift gauges
