    3" lift front and back
    Hey guys this is my first post here. I have a 04 reg cab prerunner w/ 2.7 engine.
    I but a 3" spacer lift up front and 3.5 blocks on back about 6 months after I bought my truck new off of the lot. 5 months after the install the steering pump starts whining whenever the engine was running. Didn't matter if i was turning or not. Stayed this way up until 9 months or so ago when I took my lift off. As soon as the lift was removed my power steering whine disappeared and all is well.
    Question is, I would like to put another lift on but if the steering pump is going to whine again than nevermind.
    Is anyone else having this happen?
