    I was driving up a freeway onramp the other day and took the turn a bit too fast. It was a right turn and I heard the drivers side front tire rubbing. I'm assuming it's the front tire rubbing on the front bumber plastic near the lower front bumper. Sound right?

    My caster is at 1.7 and 2.4.

    Anyways, what exactly is this beeping sound mean? I know its some sort of indicator but wanted to know what exactly its telling me.

    VSC...tells ya to not drive like a jackass. as for the rubbing, it could be front or back...more than likely it's the back. what wheels/tires are you running? any lift?

    Couple of days ago, I was turning a corner and my left rear tire kissed the edge of the curb - I heard a beep. Assume this is what you are referring to - is this some kind of slip warning signal?

    Kind of

    the beeping is telling you the traction control was activated.

    when a tire starts to spin freely, like on ice, or loses contact with the road

    the traction control applys the brake to that wheel

    and the beeping sounds
