DaSOB will become famous soon enough

Sounds like whatever is causing it is happening when you bottom out the suspension, or at least hit a good enough bump to cause it to nearly bottom out. My first suspicion would be that the wheel is rubbing on something. What shape are your stop bumpers in? If they're in bad shape, maybe the control arms are moving up far enough to let the tire rub.

Does it sound like a harsh grinding, or more like something rubbing?
Ah Luv Muh Truck!!
