Need help identifying sound
Little bit of background. My truck has 103k miles, and put less than 15k miles a year on my truck, mostly city. In the past 6 months I've had my 6" lift increased to 8"(don't think it's a factor but never know). Before that I had my head studs and EGr delete along with a few misc wear and tear stuff like hoses. I know the noise started before the lift, but can't remember of it was before the engine work. I think it might have started before.
To the noise. It's a deep growling(almost a grinding sound but not quite), and it only sounds when I'm turning left and accelerating at the same time. No sound when I turn right, and does not always sound when I turn left and I'm already at driving speed. But every time I'm turning left from a stop sign or light it makes the sound. I have also noticed that once the sound starts, if I punch the gas it will stop.
I know it is not my tires rubbing. Only thing I can figure is a pulley, possibly the power steering pulley, is going out. But I would think if it was the pulley it would make the sound turning either direction. Any help or ideas would be much appreciated.
