Since I put on my 30" tires they bark on the street, any thoughts? I dont see adjustments for alignment but thats not my thing so who knows.

The Tensor regular tire is a flat tread contact design tire so this can make the rear tires bark when turning with a locked rear differential on pavement they get a lot of traction with this type of design.

I'm still doing this and not sold on the square tire theory, any other views? Also I'm in 2 wheel drive

The tire style and compound will make a difference. It seems like the all-terrain "truck" type tires bark easier and louder than tires with a more open tread pattern. I have noticed this in Moab on the slick rock, and on the streets. Bighorns are actually a pretty soft rubber and don't seem to bark or squeal much on anything.

Completely normal. While turning the outside tire rotates faster than the inside tire since the rear is always a locked diff. Same as any car with a spool in the rear diff. Some tires squeal and bark more than others depending on rubber type.

Wait... The rear diff doesn't unlock? Is it even a diff?

My Yamaha Raptors (both the 660 & 700) would "bark" on pavement around corners too. They were both solid axles and with the YXZ being a locked rear axle, it does the same thing, even in 2WD...nothing to worry about. You might try not turning as sharply, if that is possible.
