    grinding noise from rear during turn



    I need help trouble shooting a problem with my 07 DC 4wd 5.7l lb with 40k miles. I have noticed that a grinding sound similar to a dragging brake/bearing has been occuring whenever I turn. It is particularly loud when I make a right turn, even a gentle turn at 25mph or higher. I did check for obstructions, low tire pressure, lubed the springs so I can hear the noise better, added 1/2 qt of differential oil as it was low, tried 4wd, applied service brakes in the turn, applies e-brakes in turn. Nothing seems to change it.

    I am certian it is towards the back of the truck. I did have $12k damage to the front end in December as a result of someone pulling out in front of me. I didn't have any frame damage, or damage to the truck past the front fenders/hood. So I don't think the accident has anything to do with the trouble. I do haul a 31' camper with a tongue weight of #900 and tow weight of about #7500. I do use a weight distribution hitch and air bags. We just got back from a 500 mile trip to NY finger lakes without trouble. But, now I think I heard the noise when we were towing the camper. At the time I dismissed it as noise coming from the hitch. I'm not sure though. Anyway, speed doesn't seem to change the noise except to make it louder. It can be heard on both sides of the truck but much louder on the drivers' side.

    I did jack up the truck, tried to feel for bad bearings by wracking the wheels left/right and up/down. I also spun them but didn't hear anything unusual.

    Any ideas what else to look for before heading to the dealer?

    Thanks, Bob

    Might be a rear warped rotor Bob.... try pressing the brakes slightly when turning to see if it gets louder or stops altogether. In either case it might tell you if that's the problem.

    I would guess brakes, bearings, or differential and check probably in that order.

    thanks Toxarch, rarjar



    It isn't the service brakes, as applying them in the turn doesn't change a thing. Right now, I have the disk brakes removed, not the problem. What I am having trouble with is removing the drums. They won't budge. I do have the parking brakes off. I did try prying the wheel to feel for a loose bearing, but they felt "tight"

    might be solved...



    I took the truck on a trip to the Yoto doctor. His diagnosis: deformed clips on the parking brakes are rubbing the inside of the drum. Not obvious to us shade tree mechanics; I guess thats why Toyota charges so much. Anyway, its ok to drive. I just have to put up with the grinding until the clips come in Thursday. I'll put them on this weekend and let you know if it works. Can't believe all that noise from a clip the size of a dime.

    One thing the mechanic told me is that bad bearings make a whirling sound that gets louder as speed increased. Its hard to describe the noise he made but it is kind of like a vacuum when it is winding down.

    thanks for the help
    Bob

    Resolution:



    well, I installed the springs and clips even though I saw the problem. I've attached photos of the rubbing area. Funny that I didn't notice this rubbing nor did the mechanic at the dealership. I did the old tap tap with a screwdriver and hammer on this inner shield. No noise. I also found similar rubbing on the other drum and did the same. I have no ideal why this would be happening.

    thanks for the help
