4x4 popping noise

I am looking at buying a 2007 Expedition. When I put it in 4hi or 4low and make a tight turn I get a popping noise. almost sounds and feels like a locker popping. It only happens in 4x4. anyone have this or know ifs a big issue? In a straight line and small turns its fine, no issues.

Also if you know of any other problems I should look for that would be great.

Here's what the manual says:
Do not use 4H (4X4) or 4L (4X4 LOW) on dry, hard surfaced roads.

Doing so will produce excessive noise, increased tire wear and may
damage drive components. 4H (4X4) and 4L (4X4 LOW) are only
intended for consistently slippery or loose surfaces. Use of 4H (4X4) or
4L (4X4 LOW) on these surfaces may produce some noise (such as
occasional clunks) but will not damage drive components
