    So I have a 2014 DCSB with a 3 inch lift and 32s have a weird on and off humming between 40 ish and 60 ish. I've already checked the play and so did the shop and nothing was off any idea guys?

    Does the hum go away when u flip into 4high?

    My guess is either front diff needle bearing or wheel bearings

    If it goes away in 4wd, its the needle bearing. Check out east coast gear supply. They have a solid replacement that solves this issue

    Huh I'll have to check that and I'm not sure if it was my drop bearing kit either I took it off but might put it back on and see but I'll check the 4wd

    It just must not be disengaging all the way then?

    No, it's disengaging fine. There is a needle bearing in the left side of the front differential that when goes bad will make a cyclical grinding or groaning noise in 2wd. When switched to 4wd the noise will go away.

    I recommend taking it to the dealership for replacement. Special tools are required.
    P/N 90364-35008 needle roller bearing
    P/N 90311-47027 oil seal
