Clicking noise when turning steering wheel

I've been experiencing a clicking noise from under my '00 F350 4x2 every time I turn the steering wheel either direction. It definitely sounds like it is coming from under the vehicle. I've been all over the underneath and can't figure out where it is coming from. I wanted to see if any of you guys have experienced this problem before I start just swapping random parts. Thanks for your time.

I have the same problem on my 2003 6.0 and my buddys dads 2004 6.0 we can not figure it out either. Hopefully someone chimes in and knows whats going on. It makes me think my front end is going to fall off one day!

Update- I took the truck into the dealership to try and get it diagnosed before I just started swapping parts. They found a loose I-beam bolt, torqued it down, now the noise is gone. That's something that I probably wouldn't have looked at. Lesson of the day, mind the small stuff.
