    Black '99 3.4 SR5 4x4. OME/Dakar
    16x8 KONIG Countersteer Offroads from FN, OME/881s in front, OME shocks/Dakar leafs in back. K&N CAI, and last, but not least, TRD Shift knob.
    I've a '99, extended cab, 3.4L, 4WD with 152K on the clock. I LOVE this truck, but...

    Within the last 10K miles or so, I've noticed a rumbling noise, which seems to be coming from underneath the truck, that changes with different speeds. I don't feel any particular vibration; I'm doubtful that it's a wheel or alignment issue. It's more noticeable when I've let off the gas and am coasting, but it is getting annoying. I have stock wheels and no aftermarket lift.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance!

    Check your carrier bearing, grab your drive shaft and wiggle. If there is a lot of play in the rubber bearing it may be shot. Hope this helps

    I would check your front wheel bearings. My brothers 4 runner is doing the same thing it is not consistant, but on a long left turn(with most of the weight on the passenger side) it is louder. His wheel did not move though, just made a noise.
