In general you going to want check the following:
Front DS ujoint- check for play.
Front ujoint / bearing - movement?
4wheel drive is disengaged yes?
Lastly you can pop the diff cover and do an inspection.

It's probably just a ujoint. I would swap them with serviceable units and do a full front end grease.
