When you put the ball joints in, it is very important to put them in by hand with a wrench, not an impact.

Impact will blow them out, and fry them

I know it's a PIA, but you need to jack it up, and unhook the tie rods, and hand steer the wheels, see what is tight.

I finally ended up using Ford ball joints, the aftermarket ones were not a match for my truck. I went through 4 sets of ball joints in 2 months

unfortunately its not a tie rod or ball joint issue... if they were id be having the same problems when the fronts unlocked too.. the main time im having the problems is when the front axles locked in and driveshafts locked in to 4hi too... if the hubs are locked and the t-case is still in 2hi i can tell the fronts locked because it rides a little different but the jerking wheel effect doesnt appear
