I just did mine on my 2000 V8 last weekend, I actually did it twice in a row but thats another story. I cannot think of anything that you could have damaged that only makes noise while the truck is in motion. Can you listen around a little more? Can you hear anything parked at idle or in gear at idle? Maybe narrow it down to a serpentine componet? Did you change any other parts besides the WP and TB? oh, maybe check your trans fluid level? Thats about all i got....
Did ya replace either Idler pulleys? my older truck has 2 of them and they were both history!! just make a loud squeal continously!! but not high pitched squeal!! bearing on my #2 pulley was TOAST!! service writer said no need to replace but tech said NOPE they have gotta be done and i had planned to do them anyway but writer said no. i can't wait till i run into that guy again!! he is lucky the tech changed them cause if i had to pay for them to tear down again i would be very unhappy!! he did not even know the mielage on the old parts much less ever seen my truck!! No more loud bearing squeal and i am smilling from ear to ear. i can actually drive it without people staring at me like where is all that noise coming from!!:D
