Vibration and banging noise in front end right in fornt of center console on the floor board I think its the u joints? But I have to get two guys to believe me on this. The banging noise is only when...

Sounds like U-joint. Also check front driveline shaft on 4x4, sympathetic motion can sometimes turn shaft when not in 4x4 mode.

With play in U-joint, joint slips to one side as Torque pushes against flange to turn driveshaft. Basically U-joint is cocked and shaft is not running true to center plane.

Also worth checking are front c-v joints if 4x4 vehicle. Pretty much the same problem can exist with these small joints as with the big joints on your driveshaft.

The last areas are the motor mounts and transmission mounts. These can cause the same problems you describe. And remember that sound transmits differently through metal.

Clunk in 4x4 1998 f150

Start by checking the axle half shaft u joints and then the drive line u joints for worn or loose end caps. Also if you have a constant velocity joint on the front drive line make sure the centering ball and socket are not worn. Most people never grease this item and by the time you figure it out it's too late.
