Rough rider

Ok my 04f-150 has been messing up lately. The 4wd doesn't work. Pretty sure that's the actuators however, now it is riding EXTREMELY rough! Every time I turn the wheel to turn into a parking lot and then proceed to enter the lot something in the front end pops! Loudly! It sounds like popping out a dent like its loud! I have no idea what it is. I just know 4wd doesn't work, there is a loud popping noise when I hit pot holes or turns. I CANT even go off road now because of the popping noise and also it is extremely extremely rough. Any clues on what's up?

Sounds more like its locked into 4WD, and you're hearing the sound of built-up tension releasing.

It's not locked in I've checked. I think it's either ball joint or something else it's just like popping every single bump and turn and it's so dang rough riding. It's unbearable. Literally throws me around in the truck on an old paved road

Inspect the coils on the struts, they are prone to breaking
