    Just had 3" revtek lift installed. Tires were rotated and suspension aligned with new specs. On the 1st trip down road am hearing front tire humm. Happens when I decelerate and also worse when brakes applied. Is this normal?? I hate it. I did not want any changes to the ride. I needed to get the lift because when I go to my secret spot camping, the front end skid plate hits and....scrapes the skid plate....the installer is working with me. Feels it could be the rotation of the tires and or needs balancing. ??? Anyone with any ideas????

    Are they the same tires prior to the lift?

    Fairley new Goodrich trail TA s. hear humm whe decelerating and applying brakes. Kinda like the noise u hear when a super lifted truck with huge tires passes u. The shop guy says it may be the rotation and the wear pattern change on the back tires which r now on the front. If not, then he says we will balance tires. My opinion is should have balanced when aligned and rotated! We will see. Anyone have any input which I have not brought up? Also love to learn about susp changes and how they effect truck handling. This truck is my baby. Will post pics on my day off. Thanks to y'all.

    you would have to see the before and after #'s from the alingment
    that or tires being rotated i belive are your main causes here
