F150 issues

Need Help. I have a 06 F150 4wd. When I drive down the road there is an intermittent rattle that is coming from the front / mid point of the truck. When I put it in 4wd the rattle goes away. (I have electric shift on the fly) The handling of the truck is not affected and the wheel bearings are good. Can anyone give me advice as to what it can be?

Yes. Sound like it could be coming from the differential area but I don't think it is the diff.

the truck is real solid the bed doesn't vibrate. I was thinking it was coming from the transfer case or the front axles. It like a lose part getting knocked around. But everything works and sound goes away when I put it in 4wd.

Yea i would put it on a rack and have someone get in put it in gear and slowly raise the throttle until in makes the sound, while someone is listening and looking for it.Then you should find it . it would be nice if the rack was one you pull on where the wheels are like on the rack like a muffler rack or something like that. Hope al this helps you out. Cole

If the cats are coming apart on the inside just tap them with a deadblow or your fist pretty hard and listen. That is the easiest way to find out.

I have had cats break apart before I don't think its the cats. This problem just started and the noise is loud. Cat will break apart gradually unless the motor back fires or is dumping raw fuel into the exhaust and then it ignites.
