Question about 1985 Ford F 250
Truck makes clicking noise in front when not in 4-wheel drive.Starts at 35 mph and stops over 45 mph.Already has new manual locking hubs. Can't hear well unless driving next to guard rail or someother object or tree line. Truck has 300k miles on it. Truck has had new ujoints in rear driveshaft.Sounds like when you have a rock stuck in tire.
Check the backside Of your tire. I drive an 89' f-150, and had a very similar noise. Turns out I had a rock jammed in my rotor and it was hitting the caliper every time the wheel made a rotation. I ultimately had to use a crowbar to pry the rock out. The other thing you could, and should, check is your brakes on that side. Check break pads, rotor condition, and confirm that your caliper is not worn out. I would also suggest checking your lockout hub. It could very well be that your lockout is worn out, and catching just a little bit, even though it is supposedly unlocked and disengaged. While your down there, check the joints of your front axle to check for any slop or play in them. Replace as needed.
