I have a leveling kit and a 3" spindle lift on my truck. The noise happens when I brake, and also when I turn. It sounds like something is in a bind. It started 2 weeks ago, and I have since changed the UCA's and struts, but the noise is still there. I took it to the dealership and they ran some test, but couldnt figure it out. Any ideas before I have to take it back to stock?

Did you get another alignment after ucas and struts?

What am I listening for? Is it a pop, grind, screech, bang, clank? What side? Turning which way? Being it's a 2wd I'd guess hubs

Check ur dust shields see if they are rubbing the rotors
Bingo. Dust shields have to be trimmed with spindles. Shine a flashlight in between the back of your caliper and rotor and see if its folded back in to the rotor somehow

Not hard. Just requires taking off hub, which means removing wheels, brakes and stuff like that. So takes some time

Take it to a shop. You don't sound too confident in this and it's fairly intrusive to get to.

Finally found out the problem after spending tons of time and money trying to find what the noise was. Turns out it was just my running boards. Lol! Not really sure why, but they were the cause of all that noise!
