I don't know if this helps. But check your brake lines. My tires were rubbing on mine (the flexible rubber part of brake line) and it would make a sound like it was rubbing on the fender skirting. I suspect this was a problem before I bought the truck, as it happened just within the first week of owning it.
I didn't know where it was coming from. I thought it was just the over size tires rubbing the fender. Until one day I parked at a convenience store. When I left, before even getting out of the parking lot, I had no brakes. Got out to inspect, saw brake fluid all over the ground on the driver's front.
ROFL. Luckily I had my cell phone and called the local auto store. They had the brake line in stock. So I called my mom and she brought me my bag of tools and the brake line.
I was very very very lucky, because I had just finished towing my nephews RAM 2500 on the highway. And this was on I-205 going across the Columbia River. My truck sits high up, If I had to swerve to avoid traffic, there was a good chance I would have gone over the barrier and down a couple hundred feet to the water.
So don't rule out your brake lines. Check them for tire clearance.
