This is the first vehicle I have owned with leaf springs but lately I have been noticing that when I go over large bumps a large banging noise from the rear end. I also notice it when I am heavy on the throttle and I go over small bumps or if I am braking hard and go over a small bump. I am just curious if this is axle wrap or if there is something else I should be concerned with. I have taken a rubber mallet and beaten on anything I can think of underneath and have yet to find anything loose.
Do you have a trailer hitch in your tow receiver? Mine did that too, drove me crazy until I found it. I pushed the hitch in tight all the way, drilled a new pin hole and welded the old pin hole up. Noise gone.
