    '16 SR5 with JBA UCAs and Eibach pro kit suspension installed about a year and a half ago.

    Something new just started a few weeks ago. When I get in the truck, start it, and start to move backwards/forwards its fine until i start to turn, then DING comes from the front drivers side wheel. It will only do it once, then you have to let it sit for at least 30 minutes and I can get it to DING again.

    I'm in the wheel well and under the truck trying to figure out where the hell this is coming from but I can't figure it out. Theres nothing loose, the UCAs are all lubed up, I dont see any abnormal where anywhere. No clue.

    Anyone have any idea what this DING could be? It's almost like a seized bolt is breaking free but everything looks and feels perfectly fine.

    Thanks all!

    Any chance you can post a video?

    Have the ball joints been greased?

    A video would definitely help

    Have you tried this with 4WD engaged? What about holding pressure on the brakes? Maybe try coasting? (Park on an incline and see if you can get it to ding)

    Doing some different stuff may allow easier diagnosis by narrowing to which components it might be.

    I definitely understand the frustration because that would be annoying the hell out of me haha

    I'll try to get a video of it.
    Testing it earlier, I didnt even have to be in gear... just in park. You slowly turn the wheel one way or the other and it will DING once and thats it. I'll have to try not even starting the truck at all just put it in ACC mode and try turning it.
