I have a std cab 03 EDGE Steppie with a sealift 4.5" lift.
Other than the tire growl there is a metallic grinding noise when I corner.
I thought it was the front wheel bearings, had them checked nothing wrong, I am pi$$ed every time I drive it but I have gotten used to it.
Maybe an SAS will help, lol.
Sorry tis is no help I know but I too have a front end noise that won't go away.

check that your front diff is unlocked when in 2wd, also check that your brake sliders arent locking up.

check that at full lock nothing is contacting your backing plate on the brakes.
