SOURCE: 2002 ford f250 v10 when making turns in four wheel

Four wheel drive is designed to drive on grave or mud. You will always have a feeling within the steering wheel and the truck will feel as though it is hopping , this is normal on dry pavement. How ever you shouldn't hear noise this is an indication that your universal joint on your front differential shaft is worn. You should have both changed if you are considering driving it in four wheel drive a lot in the conditions that the vehicle was designed to drive in, slippery, muddy,ect.

I have a ford f250 diesel 4x4 and the front axle is makeing a grinding noise any one know what that is


It sounds like you may have a wheel hub bearing going bad . Jack up front of truck and spin each tire and listen for any noise it should be quite and spinfree if you find it's bad you must replace the whole hub you can't just repair the bearing this is a common problem on the f250

Four wheel drive not engaging


Check the front wheel bearings for play and also while the wheel is off the ground lock the front hubs, grab the axle behind the wheel and see if it is engaged. If not then you will need to take the hub apart and find out what is broken.

A grinding noise in the front end of my 2002 f250 super duty and its not the brakes


If it is a 2 wheel drive, it is probably your wheel bearings. If it a four wheel drive, it could be the front differential, the joints on the axle shafts, the locking hubs, or the wheel bearings. On the four wheel drive, crawl under the vehicle and grab the axle shafts and see where the excess movement is. Also try grabbing the tires and see if there is any movement. There shouldn't be any movement while the wheels are on the ground.
