    Just had 6 inch pro comp intalled on 07 Access Cab 4x4 yesterday. I'm getting an extremely loud squeal off and on from what I think is the brake slightly dragging. Any ideas what has caused this???

    It goes back to installer tomorrow

    just went out and did some more checking. its acturally the front brakes that are squealing. Its happening even when the brakes are not applied.

    wat?
    check and make sure there is nothing between the rotor and the dust shield....or the dust shield itself rubbing on it. i had a ridiculous squeal when some rocks got caught between the rotor and brake shield.

    Hitch and wiring, aux back-up light, rear strobe lights, radio and underseat sub.
    If no debris, clean everything the pad touches and reapply anti-squeal compound to the back of the pad and guides.
