1990 Toyota 4X4 noise.

Hey all.

My neighbor has a 1990 Toyota SR5 4X4 extended cab with a V6.

It's got a strange noise that appears at approxamitly 30 - 35 mph. It's coming from around the front drivers side. The noise sounds sorta like a flat spot in a bearing or something yet there's no real vibration in the stearing wheel but it sounds terrible. The strange part is that if he hits a bump just the right way or jerks the wheel the right way it will stop for a bit and then come right back. He has had new rotors, brakes and the mechanic claims that the wheel bearings looked good and they were re-packed, he also had the front differential fluid changed.

Could be a bad front drive shaft or maybe the hubs.

On a straight road........sway the truck from side to side (slalom)Does the noise increase in one direction and quiet in the other???.........
Are the locking hubs automatic or manual and are they releasing completely????

I'll ask him about the questions you have. Hopefully I can get him signed up here and he can answer directly.
