Gm IFS front axle clunk

My 02 IFS started clunking very loud when engaged. The faster I go the louder it is . You can also feel it more. I am afraid to engage it at more than 10 mph which is bad in the snow and you go from a clear road to a snowy one. Anyone have tis problem and know how to fix it?

Jack up the front end and try to shake the tires. If they move, its a wheel bearing. If not, its a u-joint.

could be an issue with the front drive-shaft or one of the CV-shafts as well... its not an issue with your IFS, its an issue in your powertrain when you involve 4x4
