I have a knocking noise in my front end whenever I put my 1998 gmc sierra z71 in 4 wheel drive

when was the last time you've checked the fluid level in the front differential?
Try this, quickly. these gears don't last long when the fluid level is low, and it's a real big job to replace the gears/differential housing.

I hope this helps, ask if you need anything.

What do you think about replace the differential gear grease in a 2004 GMC Envoy?

The front and rear differential fluid should be changed somewhere around the 75K to 100K mile area. Use a good quality synthetic gear lube fluid, 95W.

What is a good synthetic diff fluid for 98 explorer 4X4 and a 98 ranger2X4? and what quantity should I purchase for each I am replacing both covers?

RedLine makes very good differential fluids.The fluid in the rear differential is going to be 75w140 and as far as the front differential,I would check with the parts store for that.It could be 75w90 or 75w140. You should get about 2 quarts of fluid for each differential.The transfer case is going to use Mercon V(5).About 2 quarts for that as well.
