Default Front end rattle?

New to the forum, hoping you guys could help me out. I've recently noticed a rattle noise coming from the front end of my truck. The wheel bearings were both replaced a few months ago. Once I heard the notice, it sounded like it was coming from the drivers side so I tried to pull the cv and couldn't get it off the diff. Took it to the shop had them replace it and the noise went away. Now it's back a week later. It rattles at higher than 60km/h and goes away as soon as it shift into 4x4 but still rattles in 4x4 only when I hit the gas. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Not yet, would the u-joints really make all that noise? I checked the socket bearing on the front drive shaft and I'm able to push it up a bit. Is there supposed to be any play in that?
