Question about 2001 Ford F150 Styleside SuperCrew
I have a 2001 Ford F150 4x4 that I feel a grinding when I initiate a right or left turn from a stopped position in 4x2. I have also lost turning radius when in 4x4.. Is my transfer case going bad?
Losing turning radius is normal for 4x4. The grinding can be from hidden rear emergency brakes in back of rear rotors. The front pads can make noise and the front hubs should be checked if you do decide on replacing the front brakes.

Change the fluid and there is a limited slip diff. additive that NAPA has (looks like a caulk bottle). IF teh clutches in the rearend are not bad. THis should solve. It worked on my 04 F150.

Sounds to me like you've been mudding a bit and have lost or damaged your front hub grease seals
and they filled up with dirt/mud/water and now rust
This used to happen to me quite a bit as I go muddin everyweekend I can (just love Snow4x4 thru the woods with my 44's on) but now after a few front hub rebuilds I've learned to carry a jug of clean water with me and give that area a good wrinse when I get back to the road
a hub rebuild with seals and bearings will take you a good saturday and cost about 80 bucks
hopefully you catch it before you have to have replace u joints thats where the time and money come in

It is either the balljoints or bearings.
