Humming Noise After RC 2" Lift
I could not find any threads via the search function that addressed this noise, so forgive me if this has been covered here.
I had the Rough Country 2" Lift Kit installed last week at a local shop. They did the alignment after the install. It looks very nice! They should have built them stock like this. I still have the stock tires on (245/65/17 Forteras), but will upgrade when they wear out.
My question is, I am hearing a humming noise that is similar to tire noise, and I thought that might be what it is since there was an alignment that may have changed the way the tires are wearing. I asked the guy at the shop to take it for a ride. He says it is due to the lift putting the drivetrain at a slightly different position than stock, so I am hearing the humming noise from that, and not the tires.
Has anyone else had this problem? Is this going to cause problems down the road? The humming is not too loud, but it could get annoying on longer trips. Any help would be appreciated.
Also, on the front tires, I never noticed how close the tires are to the suspension. Literally less than an inch between the top of the tire and the suspension piece (not sure what the part is). If I go a bigger tire, say 255/70, how close will that be then and will it be a problem? Or should I stay with a 245 width, possibly 245/75?
