I own a 2003 6.0 4x4 with 115,000 miles. The problem is when I am slowing down, just before coming to a complete stop, I hear a loud pop from the front end. This is the only time I hear it. I suspect it might be the ball joints. Any help or thoughts?
The hubs aren't locked are they? I'm thinking binding, then releasing when slowing down but that may be a long shot, and way to easy. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Not sure what tranny you have, but I have the torqshift and as I am coming to a complete stop, the tranny will downshift to 1st gear about the time I reach complete stop. This has sort of thump to it that you can feel. You could try coming to a stop in neutral, to eliminate the tranny.

My hubs appeared unlocked (auto), but I turned them to the locked position, and then back to auto. Since I did that, the popping noise has not happened for the last 3 days. It is possible the hubs were bound up. Thanks.
I've noticed something similiar when coming to a stop after it has rained or after I have gone and washed my truck. It may happen 2 maybe 3 times and then seems to stop. Never had any noise like the pop when everything was dry though. Maybe just a coincidence??? Who knows
