    1994 F250. HD front end. I locked in my hubs today in anticipation of plowing tonight. Notice a noise and vibration (significant) on the front left hand side even in 2WD mode. When I left the office to head home, it was snowing quite hard so I put the truck (manual transfer case) into 4x4 high. The truck didnt want to go in a straight line to save it's life. The ass end, left side kept yawing out to the left so I was almost going down the street parallel to the line of traffic. The steering gear is fairly worn anyways but nothing like this in2WD mode. Once I did the 4x4 thing it was just a messy pup.

    Any ideas where to start troubleshooting this?
