Yes, ..BUT.. There are a couple issues that must be considered..
Front end first.
1. Clearance = at the fenders when the suspension moves the tires to max travel upward... == 2. When the tires are turned full travel left and right ( full suspension travel also)..make sure the tires will clear the frame/suspension components (at full turn - left and right) Next is the front end geometry (toe-in -caster/camber) is set after you install the new tires... larger tires will also decrease your milage (harder for the engine to turn).. REAR END - make sure the tires clear the fenders when the suspension moves through the full travel range.. if the tires stick outside the fenders, you MIGHT have an issue at full suspension compression.. not to mention throwing "stuff" all over your truck!
The most common source of front suspension squeek for your vehicle a ball joint that has not been lubricated with each oil change. I would liberaly lubricate the upper and lower ball joints and re-evaluate your noise issue. While this may temporarily resolve the noise concern, the lower ball joints will most likely require replacement.
this could be a bad inner axle joint check to see if the axle boot on the left side is torn or missing also check the wheel bearings and tie rod ends by jacking up the front of the vehicle one corner at a time and grab the tire at the 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock position and wiggle it back and forth looking for excessive movement in the tie rod ends then reverse your hands to the top and bottom of the tire and try moving it from top to bottom checking for excessive wheel bearing movement it shouldn't move in or out at the top or bottom
1. I would suggest that you engage your 4WD while you are in full stop and/or safe range of 5mph, however as claimed by the local dealers your vehicle is capable of engaging even while driving. Engage your 4WD while moving only when necessity requires.
2. That clicking noise while turning extreme right or left would be the birfield of your axle and would only mean your front hub is still engage even though you have disengaged transfer case.
Have your front hubs cleaned of old lubricants or grease due to non usage. dont use grease as lubricants, use thick oil such as gear oil or silicone oil. and use your 4WD every now and then.
Do this first then check if you still feel somtehing is loose on your suspension and others.
Try hammering the front right hub with a wood or a rubber hammer while slowly reversing the vehicle, and keep on unlocking the hub while doing this. spray it with lubrication first
yes, you need to change the gear oil in your gear box
Have your clutch re adjusted, it may be worn out , that's why you are having a hard time changing gears or have it bleed to keep the air out if you are using hydraulic.
If you dont hear any noise in your gear box while driving, its nothing serious, worst thing could be replacing your clutch lining and pressure plate.
The steering and suspension systems of the car are fairly robust and generally not too much goes wrong with them. With the advent of rack and pinion steering and the use of MacPherson strut suspension tech, a lot of moving parts have been eliminated. Things still can go wrong and cause a vehicle to become hard to control. When something is wrong the very least that will happen is your tires will wear out very quickly and at most, lead to an accident.
In your case... You'll notice it takes much more strength to turn the steering wheel. This is especially noticed when you are trying to park. The problem seems to be getting worse.
1.Low tire pressure: Check and adjust tire pressures.
2.The steering gear needs to be lubricated: Lubricate steering gear parts as required.
3.The wheels are out of alignment: Have the wheels aligned.
4.A part of the steering linkage is damaged and doesn't not move freely: Replace steering gear parts as required.
5.Your steering box needs to be adjusted: Adjust steering box as required.
6.You have a problem with the power steering pump: Repair or replace power steering pump as required.
