2000 taco 4x4 downy adjustable lift with all pro upper a arms uniball long travel and 33" tires.
I recently went to the dunes and mashed it up pretty hard. I didn't notice anything break at any point, though.
The problem: When the steering gets about halfway through one direction, it begins to squeak/groan. It only happens when the steering wheel is turning, but will happen if the car is moving or not. Car still operates normally and handles fine.
I took a look underneath and noticed that the steering rack torques/rotates a little around its long axis when the steering wheel moves. I tried re-torquing all the associated bolts, but this did not help.
I have also noticed a little gash in the metal that houses the upper end of the coil spring/shock assembly. (not sure what to call this cause some of these parts are not stock). It appears that this gash could be in the path of travel of some of the suspension components under extreme conditions. I am not sure, however, when this gash appeared. Also, its not a huge gash, it would not have taken a lot of force to cause.
