Noise

Only happens when I back up with my 5ver, it pops a little. I know it's more than likely the
Springs. Am guessing the rubber in the spring where it attaches to shackle,, doesnt bang loud but enough when backing up it makes people look. Is it something to get excited about or not ? Thanks in advance

It's a lack of grease on the bolts and wearing out of the plastic bushings in your suspension. But that's how they come from the factory,: prepped to fail. I just replaced my suspension with E-Z Flex, the bushings are brass and the bolts have zerk fittings for adding grease. No more pops or squeaks.
