    :confused: I have a 05 Tacoma with a 3" lift. The truck is making noise around 35-45 mph. Further investigation: I put the truck on jack stands and decided to spin the tires to isolate the problem. The outcome is as follows. Front driver wheel makes a clicking noise around the axle assembly when spun. The passenger tire does not. Any thoughts from people out there. I suspect something internal of the front differential is the issue. When the truck is shift into 4 Hi the noise goes away. In 2 Hi the noise returns.

    CV's look great. There is a bit of an angle to them. I did install the differential drop kit thought. This noise is definitely a clicking noise between the frount left wheel and front differential. The right side makes no noise. I've been looking for a detailed view of the whole front drive assembly but can't find one.
