I have a 2001 Ford F250 Powerstroke 4X4, that is making a noise that seems to be coming from the front left wheel. I’ve replaced the brake pads thinking maybe they were worn, which the were more so on the inside left and right, but that didn’t solve the problem. Next step was lock the hubs, it had the auto/lock hubs on it from the factory, which made the noise go away. I suspected a vacuum leak might have been trying to engage the left hub, which seems to maybe be the case. So I replaced the auto/lock hubs with warn 1/4 turn manual hubs but am still getting the same noise when the hubs aren’t locked. I rebuilt the front end about 25 to 30k ago, so I really don’t think it’s a wheel bearing, as the noise is intermittent. I have a video of the noise it’s making but the sound of the motor kind of drowns it out.
