    Hi, sorry if this has been asked before but from searching I couldn't find anything similar to my issue.

    I have a 2007 4x4 dbl cab, with bilsteins and an aal. Im also running 285/75 R16's with wheel spacers. I lifted it almost 1.5 years ago, and tires were probably 10 months ago.

    I've had zero issues with my truck, however recently I've slowly gotten a front end vibration at highway speeds. What confuses me is that when the truck leans the vibration goes away. For example while at about 60-65 mph, it's vibrating but if I go through a decent turn on the highway and my taco leans to one side slightly the vibration goes away completely until it levels out again.

    Any Ideas?

    if it goes away turning it could be a wheel bearing....but could you better define vibration, where do you feel it?

    Its a vibration that can be felt and heard in the front end. You can feel it in the wheel and floor.

    If I were you, I'd jack up the front end and wobble the tires to see if there is excessive play, wheel bearing or ? This sounds like something that will only get worse and may cost you more $$$

    07 with wheel bearing probs already? :confused: unless you have over 150K i wouldnt think it was the bearing. also wheel bearings make a constant road hum noise and get louder when wheel is turned, usually no vibration issues with it though.
