    I have an 08 double cab 4X4 and have a growl coming from the front end I believe. I rotated the tires changed oil and diff fluids, greased drive shaft. CV joint boots are in good shape. Put front end up and it seems tight, I couldnt get front tires to wiggle (checking bearings). I do think the carrier bearing on the drive shaft is worn. It is definately in the drive system and not the motor as it does it when ¥ou are coasting etc. any body else have this problem or know what it might be. Thanks in advance.

    Wheel bearing? :notsure: does it make the noise all the time, only when turning, only when braking?

    how many miles do you have on it?
