They're different heights. Edge/4x4 are the same. they are taller than 2wd xlt shocks because the trucks are overall taller.

shocks have nothing to do with tire size...

noise is probably from a totally different tire.....tread design may be different causing more roadnoise.

Squeaking is usually the ball joints...
