The U-Bolts holding your springs on will get loose if you didn't torque them down to 75-ft/lbs.

That's a lot, by the way!

When the U-Bolts get loose, it will sound a little bit like your axle is bounding around.

Why? Because your axle is bouncing around.

Hey DVD, I was going through some settings on the Facebook D21Classifieds group and found you in the Blocked list. I had other admins in there for a while, so it was clearly someone else who did it - not me!

Anyway, you are not blocked anymore.

Update:::::: ok i lifted the truck on jack stands with the axle just hanging. Tires of ground about 2 inch's. So i also took the bed off , just so i could look at everything. When i rock the axle , the leaf springs knock at every end that has that steel bracket that hugs around the other leaf above it. It looks like the little rubber pads that go in there, are pretty flat. Was thinking about just slide a couple of layers of bicycle tire over the ends. I really just dont want to take the leafs apart to replace those little rubber circles. OR do yall have a different idea?? Let a brother know!!!

Probably at least as bad as a Jeep so worse than a cow.

I replaced the leafs with energy suspension bushings. And now i just cut some bed mat into four strips and wedge them into the leafs where the small rubber circles are. It was clanking there also. Now after all that the noise is gone!!!! Finally. But............. Now since i had the rear of the truck up in the air. I turned the truck on and put in gear. Look and sounded good. The i noticed SMOKE !!!!
It was coming from under the cab where the drive shaft meets the transmission. Now what the fש€ is that , that needs to be replaced?
