does it progressively get worse/louder as u increase speed, if so, maybe a wheel bearing, but u say it's only done it since you have lowered it.
check that your exhaust isnt' hitting the diff, mine was, it's been replaced since.

It doesnt have something to do with your pinion angles does it?

Pinion angle seems ok.Ive checked the wheel bearings and their ok too.Its GMF.Definately sounds like a suspension noise.IE -I hear the noise when the suspension is working on rough roads ,etc.Any more clues? :? :?
