Question: Whats wrong in my front end?

2004 Expedition front end humm and vibration that comes and goes. Baring noise as well but not constant. Actually causes drag and the vehical and slows it down. Makes it jerk like bad rotors but is not that. Is 4x4. Sounds right around the front differential. Pinion baring? Drive shaft baring? CV boots intact. Cause the vehical to pull to the right during an episode that is becoming more frequent. Baring noise has become a grind.

I recommend a front end/suspension check to look for looseness or wear. Both of those things can cause sloppy steering, vibrations, pulls, and rough riding conditions.
