    so when i press on the accelorator pedal from any time when i have left my foot off of the pedal, my truck makes a rather fart-like noise from the front passenger side of the truck. this is only for low speeds, however. i had muddytazz take a listen and he noticed it sounded like it was coming from my d44, suggested perhaps i needed to tighten my wheel bearing bolts. just looking for other ideas as well. i attempted to do try his suggestion the other day, but didn't realize i would need snap-ring pliers and had to put it off for another day. if it makes a difference, this happens both in 2 and 4 wheel drive, hubs unlocked or locked in. any thoughts?

    If your truck farts, feed it some bean-o man :haha:

    Check those bearings out, cause I sounded like it was coming from that wheel.

    Yeh, Id check the bearings.

    Just fyi, you dont need snap ring pliers, regular set of pliers will get it off, and a little bit of pressure with your hand, and maybe the pliers, will get it back on. Now the outer snap ring, its a pain, my best luck has been with 2 little teeny tiny screwdrivers, one, that I put a 90* bend on the very tip, to hook the ring, and the other to keep it from spinning round and around
