    Whats up? I'm new here and need a little help. I got a pretty loud grinding noise coming from the front region of my truck. The grind seems to get louder when I'm slowing down, from 25MPH and under seems to get louder. I've changed my rotors and my pads, stops on a dime just sounds like sh*t... I also realized that my front right locker is seized in the un-lock position.... Anybody have any ideas what the noise could be? Also, anybody know how I can un-freeze my locker?? Thanks for your time, I greatly apperciate all comments :)

    Sounds like a wheel bearing to me. Also, that truck didnt come with a locker in the front...Did you or the previous owner install one?
