    Ive noticed that i can hear my power steering when just sitting at a stop light. is that normal? and the fluid is full...

    And does anybody know a cheap website or place for cheap tires? i want some 33''BFG all terrains. 10.50x33R15 or 12.50x33R15. Thanks!

    does the sound get louder when you turn the wheel a little? If so, than your pump is probably going.

    Tire rack is probably the cheapest for tires, but those BFG's are going to be overpriced no matter where you look. I would look into some General grabber AT2's if I were you.
