I recently purchased a 2019 Tacoma SR5 with 25k miles on it. I got a 2inch level and 285s put on. That afternoon I tossed it in 4L, peeled out a couple times lightly on rocks. Tossed it in 2wl and kept going. Shortly after it started making this crazy high pitch whine when I turned at slow speeds. If I drive fast, it goes away. Sometimes now when I turn it does it with a slight grinding noise.



I took it back and told them the issues, they said it was rubbing the upper control, I looked and it’s not. When it does it, I’ll hop out of the truck and look and nothing is touching. They are gonna toss on spacers.



When he showed me he turned the wheel extremely far - like farther than I ever would and was like see - they are touching.



I also went back, put it in 4H, 4L, 2WL, several times and it still does it.



I also don’t understand how metal on rubber at slow speeds makes a whining sound and sometimes grinding.



Any help would be great!

Well, I suppose I’ll get the Supercharger comment out of the way.
