Default Need help. Noise in front suspension at road speed.

Well firstly I have a 2005 dodge ram 2500 with the hemi. Bought the truck with an 8" lift and 35" tires. I needed a new set of tires so I decided to upgrade while I was at it so now I'm sitting on 38" tires which caused a little rubbing on the flare at full crank. I installed a set of sulastic shocks in the rear which raised it another inch while making the ride a hell of a lot nicer lol and installed an 1.5" coil spring spacer on the front to eliminate the rubbing but now I have a weird rubbing/grinding metal sound when at speed on the highway. I was thinking that maybe the front driveshaft might be at too much of an angle now but any advice or suggestions would be much appriciated. Thanks, James.

I have the same noise starting at 35 MPH after getting a 6" Top Gun lift put on yesterday. It is a pretty loud tapping sound that goes away with 4HI on. I can't seem to find any help on the subject yet. Tomorrow the mechanic is going to remove the front drive shaft and drive it to see if the noise is eliminated but we still don't have a fix it that is it. Any ideas from anyone?
