Whistle noise from tie road adjusting sleeve at 30 to 60 mph on Dodge Ram 1500

For the 4x4 models, a high pitched whistle heard between 30 and 60 miles per hour can be caused if the tie rod adjusting sleeve is oriented in a way that the sleeve slot is facing toward the front of the vehicle. Wrapping tape completely the sleeve will allow you to verify the the sleeve is creating the whistle. Rotating the adjusting sleeve so the slot does not face forward will fix the problem.
