I had the Dealership install and I found out what my noise was ...here are the photos. They left a pair of vice grips attached to the tie rod and it beat the crap out of a bushing and a little bit on the control arm. They replaced everything that was scratched even and Mad apologies from my tech ...He is the guy I always ask for and sh** happens, people forget things. He was super sorry and came in on Saturday (his day off so I would not have to wait until Monday and drive a freakin Roller skate they gave me to drive. ..LOL

did you take the front air dam off?
do you have a photo of the front of the truck without the air dam?

would be stoked to see what it looks like, thinking of doing the same to mine.

I've found pics on google with the air dam removed. It's definitely a personal preference thing. I haven't convinced myself to do it yet.

Best price I found was at Autoanything right here on Zforum and paid extra few bucks and had them shipped to me in 2 days. Was awesome! They were easy to deal with and very attentive to what my needs were.

I personally like the air dam since I spend a lot of time on the highway and hopefully it gives me a tiny bit of better mileage, otherwise I would remove it probably. But for now.....it will stay.
