Switching to 4WD help!!!

The other day i was testing out my 4WD in 4hi. I noticed when i put it in 4hi that it sounds like it grinds the gears in the front then it goes in. it's automatic hubs and i was going like 15 mph, and can you do that with the automatic hubs while driving in 2WD. Switch it to 4hi because i know u can in other ford trucks, but anyways idk if its the 4wd module or what. I know i need new u- joints in the driveline. Because when im climbing hills in 4low its makes a thud like every ten seconds when im climbing. I think it's the u- joints if that has anything to do with it or my t case, so please help

I heard about the avm hubs the manual ones. I have the automatic hubs. If i switched to those can i still use my electronic switch inside the cab. Then just go out and lock my hubs,then go back in and turn the switch, but anyways i think it might be my stock hubs right now.

I can't even read that whole post. Try using punctuation.
The manual says you can shift into 4x4 "on the fly" but don't do it. The hubs engage and the driveline has to immediately catch up to the speed the tires are turning = bad. Stop completely before engaging 4x4. You can disengage while moving without trouble.
Better yet, buy AVM hubs. Engage the hubs when you are in bad weather, and you can shift in and out of 4x4 on the fly.
