comment Need help identifying grinding noise from the rear of 88 Toyota Pickup
Thanks for the post. I ended up selling the truck without ever fixing the issue. It never got worse, and only happened on hot days, so I lived with it. Mainly because front end work is above my mechanical skills, and takes tools I don't have. I really do think it was was a worn hub bearing as you suggested.

Thanks for the suggestions. I ended up selling the truck, and never had time to solve the problem. It would only do it on hot days, so during the winter I would forget about it. To answer your questions. 1) Neutral wouldn't stop the noise. 2) Braking would not change the noise. There were times I had to bring the truck to a complete stop, then it would stop. 3) Yes as I mentioned in my original post, jerking the truck, aggressively, would stop the noise.

No, never did solve it, but to be honest, I never had to time to troubleshoot it further. I sold the truck a few months back, so its now on the new owner to solve. It was most likely a front spindle or bearing that was bad. It was so random, that I just lived with it.

No, I still haven't fixed the issue. However, locking the front hubs has prevented the noise from returning. Thinking it's related to my front 4WD differential/drive train. Waiting for winter to end to break it down further.
