90 F250 Front diff making noise

Is it normal for front diff to make noises?? I understand that with front lockers it can bind up fully clocked. But even if mine is quarter turned still makes clucking noise. I'll take wide *** turns to avoid it, but still makes noises. We had a snow fall last night, and wide tires are terrible in the snow so i had to lock em in. Your take on this guys?

Yea, I understand the hopping will happen, but the noises throw me off! Going straight there's no noises tho. Just turning is when it kicks in.

Most likely a U-joint
