Could be a few things. Bad ball joint, cv joint, or others. But I'ld start with the CV joints. Basically, your axle shaft. First way to tell if that's the prob would be to put truck in 4 wheel drive, LOW gear. This will lock up all four tires. Then jack up that corner of truck. If the tire only moves a little before you can't anymore, it's fine. But if you can spin your tire completely, odds are it's your cv joint.

Front end makes noice when turning while engaged in 4 wheel drive


check front axle shafts cv joints one might be bad. also if you turn on a dry surface when 4x4 engaged it will bind and make noise. Jack front of truck up and try to wiggle wheel up,down all around as you may also have a bad wheel hub bearing that is clunking when turning.

Stuck with this problem


The front axle isnt disengaging completely. You need to probably replace the vaccum solinoid located right above your distributor on the firewall. To test you simply disconnect the two vaccum lines and splice them together. Then turn the 4wd on and see if all is normal.

Noise when in 4 x 4


Bad news... It sounds like you have a broken/stripped axle. I would start at the wheel and start disassembling from the outside in. It may just be a stripped spline in the spindle.
