Wont shift into 4x4

Two posibilities, the manual silonoid(could be operated by vaccum or electric 12V) on the front axle is not operating or the transfercase is not shifting into 4H. Transfercase manual or electric ? Jack up the front end put it in 4WD and see if the front end is locking ? Wheels should spin the opposite dirrection or turn the front driveshaft, that means it is working and the problem is in the transfercase shifting into 4WD Mike n Texas

Odd creaking sound from front end

It can be a C-V joint or other suspension part. The reason for the brief sound is the slack in the joint until it jams into position. Jams being the keyword here. There are bearings and rollers in the joint. When they disentergrate, there is space. The bearing rollers pile up and JAM together so the C-V shaft turns. It can only work like this for a limited time, then come apart.

Another possibility is a strut joint or balljoint. The weight shifts under acceleration and the part rocks in the loose fitting. It seizes into a driveable position, but only for a limited number of times under it lets loose.

As you stated, "Like it is pulling itself apart" is pretty accurate for what is happening in the C-V joint.

Without the benefit of hearing this I can only make a suggestion, have the constant velocity joint checked for excessive wear.

2000 Lincoln makes creaking noise when turning right.

You should go to a front-end alignment place and have them check the Balljoints and tierod ends. Some of the front wheel drive cars have Upper strut bearings and Constant Velocity joints.

When you hear the creaking sounds it means the parts are rusty and rubbing together. They are considered "Lubed for Life" and if they are dry and rusty their life is gone.

These parts hold the 2 front wheels together so they both turn with the wheel. The Balljoints hold the weight of the car and are the framework for the wheels.

Poor alignment caused by worn parts will destroy tires early. It is not something to ignore but it is possible only 1 part is bad out of many. It is customary to align the wheels after front end work. Some front wheel drive cars need periodic alignment on the back wheels too. So you can believe this if a shop suggests it.
