I guess i will introduvce myself at the same time. Jared, orem utah.......23...cruiser nut. I have had my 97 FZJ80 since the 1st of august. I bought it stock in Kansas city with 132k miles. since then i have J springs L shocks...caster correction. 2 1/2 inches of spacer on front springs. factory lockers 35 MTRs...and i recently did pads on all 4 brakes. .....after a couple of especially hard wheeling trips (easily level 4 trials) I have a grinding that is slowly getting worse. the grinding comes about only after i get up to cruising speeds 50 MPH and over. when i let up on the accelerator i have this grinding noise that seems to be coming from the front drivers side. it may be there at lower speeds but i cant hear it. i have inspected brakes and done some crude tests seeing if there was play in the hubs but nothing really.I have also put on roughly 2000 miles on since these trips. thanks in advance for any input.
