    So, about 2-3 weeks ago I went from a 2.5" lift with NO troubles to a 3" OME lift (885 coils/toytec top plate/billies). Initially I didnt notice anything unusual then over the last few days I have been getting a loud noise from the front drivers side while driving. It doesnt sound like a wheel bearing so I am little befuddled by whatever it is. Not sure, if anyone else has had a similar problem.

    It seems to come from the wheel well area. Yes, I looked at the other posts under search..thank you for pointing that out.:mad: It seems to stop when turning the wheels and comes back when straight??
