Thanks for providing that information.
At 65K I would first suggest changing shocks. Yes, that is enough mileage to have them beginning to get "softer" which will increase suspension travel and noise.
Even though they may test good (usual test is jumping on the bumper to see how it responds after bouncing) but that really doesn't apply to shock/strut combinations.
I would suggest a higher then factory grade replacement shock. Do realize 60% of the weight for that vehicle is in the front.
Next, there is always some, what they call "spring seating" as a vehicle gets older. You will notice it more when the suspension is in a turn, going over a bump. The spring moves / rotates in the seat, and you will hear a sometimes loud popping or clicking noise.
Bushings are probably best left to the professionals, unless you happen to have a well equipped shop at home.Same goes for the struts. You will need a good spring compressor to be able to change them, and you will need to have an alignment done after changing them. Doing the bushings at the same time is easy once the struts are out.
Since it is 4WD you mine want to test the front CV joints also. If you have access to a lift, put it in the air so all 4 wheels are off the ground, and running it. Listen to each front wheel to see if you can hear any CV noise. Please be very careful doing this. Doing it incorrectly can result in injury.
What you want to do more then anything is take this a step at a time. When you hear a noise inside a car, it can sound like it is coming from one place, and you can find out later, it is somewhere else.
I think a Haynes manual is going to be a good guide for you on this problem.
Take you time, and be very careful doing this kind of work. If at anytime you are not 100% comfortable doing the work, consult a professional.
Sorry I can't be more help as a simple fix, but I'm limited diagnosing any further without have the vehicle at my access.

sounds like the wheel speed senser is not working properly when you are in all wheel drive the computer uses the brakes to keep the all wheels rolling at the same speed for good traction if one speed senser is reading that right side front wheel was going faster than the others it would activated that brake via the antilock brake system

Gm will tell you this is normal lifter noise if it from the top of the motor. It could be from the exhaust but you would hear it from under the car more. I do not care for the responce from GM but they say it is ok.

if it sounds like it wants to but doesnt, like you can hear the motor but it is locked up, here is a way to fix it.look at seat and see if it looks sort of cocked and you may have to straighten the seat by keeping rod in one side or other and spinning it until seat is straight. there are 2 flexy cables that run side to side and cause the seat to move. they usually have a black plastic coating on them.remove them both. with both off hit switch and see if you hear the motors.If so you should lubricate tracks with silicone spray or spray grease.put cables back into holes and it should work.the cable may give you a lil trouble coming out but just pull back and forth they wont break
