    Alright so i have an 2010 dcsb with a toytec and all in the back, just now noticed from going to a specific store, when i turn to the parking spot it dips down so i dont know what exactly is grinding, well not grinding so much as a metal squeak, but it only happens in that instance, when i turn left or right and hit say a dip or the road slopes down

    What size tires do you have? Probably your tires rubbing on your cab mount.

    Can you confirm that tire size? 285/70R18?? That's a huge 34.5" tire and I don't know of any tires available in that size.

    I only ask because if that's the size you're running - I'd be very slow to rule out rubbing issues when searching for a new noise.
