Question about Cars & Trucks
It may be necessary to remove the hubs and clean out any dried grease that is preventing the actuation of the hub locks. Remember that it may be only one hub that is causing the problem so ensure that you have turned the dial until you hear it click in to place.

Knocking noise is generally from the engine. What is your oil pressure? If pressure is low and oil is reasonably full, refrain from driving it till the cause is determined. Noise can also come from the transmission or transfer case but more likely it's from the engine.It can come from sticking valve lifters (moderately bad to potentially serious) connecting rod or main crank bearings (always serious) or piston slap (annoying, expensive but not terribly serious unless very bad) Piston wristpins can also knock but are very rare in todays pistons. Either way, this is not an item to ignore.

Remove brake assembly and rotor, including axle nut (do first...about 175 ft lbs torque...a real bear to get loose) There are three 12point bolts on backside of steering knuckle. loosen them and back out about 1/2 inch...Give them a good shot with a hammer to begin pushing bearing from knuckle. (I leave an old wrench on each as I hammer so they don't deform too much.) Use lots of wd40 and sometimes you need to get a chisel and hammer between the bearing and knuckle to separate them. Reverse process (except for hammering part) to replace.
