4 wheel drive loud pop??

I have a 2000 F-250 and when I put in 4 wheel drive and lock the front end in and I turn the wheel to the left or right it makes a very loud popping sound! It sounds like its not wanting to lock in. Im taking it in to the shop tuesday. just wanting to know what I might be up against? thanks

Prolly your hubs, I remember fords in the late '90's having major issues with the automatic hubs. When mine went they made a popping sound. It's a pretty good indicator if it sounds like it's coming from the hub itself. Just to test it put it in 4wd and make a slight turn on pavement.

If this is your issue I reccomend Warn manual locking hubs.
