Popping noise in right front wheel

I have a 2000 F-350 Super Duty, 4 WD, crew cab, long bed, 7.3 PS.
I have a popping noise in my right front wheel, but it stops when I apply the brakes. I have taken the wheel off to see if anything might be loose, but couldn't find anything that looked wrong.
I did talk to one guy that said it was probably a bad hub. Does this sound like it could be the problem?
If it is a hub that needs to be replaced, where would be the best place to buy one?

Thanks for the help,

Tinman

Nope. I still have the popping noise. Guess I'll wait till the wheel falls off doing 70 mph, then I will know what was wrong.
Wish I could help.

Mine did the same thing for awhile. Turns out it was the ball joint. Give this a try, take a good light and very closely look at the ball joint and look for a rust powder around it. The factory joints dont have grease fittings and seize up and the result is rust. I ordered an online kit that came with MOOG greaseable joints and factory ford replacement seals for both sides of the truck.

Ball joint is also my guess. different vehicle but on an olds bravada i had it also made a popping sound when they were bad. are you getting any abnormal wear on your tires?

No additional wear that I can tell, but I'll start watching it close.
