Default squeak in front end while in 4wd

Happens when I use 4wd on my 00 3/4 ton with a dana front axle. I don't know if its just a coincodence but I replaced one of my front hubs and beat on the front end pretty good to get it off and after that is when I noticed it when I was checking my 4x4... then again I havent used my 4wd in probably 6 months so it may have been doing it before. Squeaking gets louder when I give it gas and it puts the front end under more of a load. Any ideas?

Yeah, but where? I'm hoping it's just the u joints though, I'm planning on replacing those along with the other front hub assembly pretty soon. Got a mechanic buddy that would do it all for free

does it make a clicking noise when making tight turns? if so, then it is likely the cv joints on the half shaft.

As for the bearing, does it have an axle bearing where it passes through the hub?

I believe mines a little different than what you're talking about.. ive got the old straight axle front end, and the hub assembly is all one part.. bearing, wheel studs, and all. I replaced one side already but that was because of the grinding, howling sound.. I'm planning on replacing the other side soon but I don't think thats what it is. I don't hear anything different when turning, just the awful squeaking sound.. only in 4 though
