I finally had my smaxx keys,shackles, diff drop,ball joint flip spacers, and kyb shocks installed in my truck then aligned!i had to replace both tie rods and I'm totally happy with the look of my truck,but today I noticed a slight noise/hum/vibration coming from front of the truck I think ...it happens around 20-30 mph? Could noise be from tires wearing unevenly and then being aligned properly . When I bought the truck the front tires were scalloped and the dealer put them on the back and said they fixed the alignment?

mine did the same thing after my bj flip, i chalked it up to tire wear prior to the flip, no probs and no uneven tire wear

Oh ok cool I kinda thought it was the tires and not somthing major ie front diff ,I'm probably gonna have the mechanic check it out anyway! Did yours take a while for the noise to go away or did you get new tires and rims?

hmmm, keep an eye on your wheel hubs, if they have wear and are on their way out, cranking the truck will accentuate the problem.

Most likely your tires see if rotating them from front to back changes anything if your rear tires don't have choppy wear it should give you an indication
