    when driving and making a left turn, I can hear grinding in the wheel area... At first I thought it may be the body flexing, then I took some of the interior apart and still hear the noise. I can't hear it turning right ... Only left. I also wondered about the weight shifting when turning left, but I wouldn't think that would make the noise..... Any ideas?

    i have a similar problem. only when i turn right it seems like the front wheel is rubbing not is not.what my brother in law told me , he use to have a nissan and he had the same problem when turning we look under and on top of the muffler on driver side theirs a aluminum pan look like. and if u kind of tap it with ur tip of ur nail it makes that similar noise. so what i'm thinking of doing when i have time is removing it and see if thats it. i'm thinking with the vibration of the mud tires when it turn it causes it to vibrate too. cuz like i said it doesn't rub at all. so im thinking that might be it. i hope u understand what im talking about but ill keep u posted if i find the problem.
