All I did was move the axle around a little and then shove it back towards the diff and everything was fine.
Is there a certain way to check if the cv joint is positioned correctly?
This could be where the noise is from?
Long time lurker here.
I've got this same exact problem with my 03 TRD 4wd since installing Bilstein 5100 series shock on the tallest setting. The rear is stock height and the front is ~2" taller than stock. The rotational hum goes away when 4wd is engaged.
I was pretty convinced that it was something with the diff, but that post has convinced me to check my front axles. I will check them this week/weekend.
Also, I've got the diff drop installed too. That did not help the issue.
