I felt it last night while taking on a test drive. After I got home I pulled the tires off and cranked down on the leaf spring u bolts. Some were a little loose. Thought that was it, but I guess not.

I'll check. I don't remember unlocking them last night, but it feels like its coming from the rear.

I think it may be the u-bolts. I thought I had bought the right ones when I put the axle in, but they ended up being the same size as the ones I had on the 7.5. I managed to squeeze them on, but no matter how hard I crank down on them, they don't seem to tighten all the way down. Anyone know where i can get 3.25" u-bolts?

They don't carry hardly any suspension stuff like that.
