Consider Deflection

Of the cumulative effect of all the slight (albeit, very small) deflections in the suspension from:
* Wheelbearing & hub flange
* Spindle
* Spindle to AArm via ball joint
* and as suggested tie rod end flex on some vehicles.
* (Cast Aluminum wheels might have some small measurable amount, but I don't include for consideration lower speed normal driving)

all adding up rather significantly during turns with a 2.5 ton vehicle in motion.

I believe this is why bent and/or corroded dust shields will make a racket only under some conditions rather than more consistently as one would expect.
I've also have been bitten by the thicker wheel weight. Spent quite some time looking for significant suspension component issues when there just weren't any.
