I recently had my 1inch Deaver pack and SAWs installed on my trunk. On certain roads the rear end bounces up and down pretty hard, is there any way I can get rid of this?

Also when I go over speed bumps the rear end is pretty squeaky too, Is this bad or just normal if it gets really dusty under there?

I think it's the combination of the TC shackles and 1" mini-pak. I've had this with the Bilsteins, and then Greg traded me DRE rears and it still had it. I think I'm going to go back to stock shackles, and if the rake is too bad switch back to the stock overload springs. And it squeaks at slow, neighborhood speeds constantly, think this is the TC shackles.

Yeah mine squeaks really bad at any speed, if I bounce on the back of the tailgate you can really hear it. I was reading through some past posts of people spraying wd-40 on the spring and shackles to help the squeak go away, but as long as it isn't hurting anything I am going to try not worry about it. What is really annoying is the bouncing on the high-way sometimes, do you get that on yours at all?

Yes ... only the last sentence of my post was about the squeak, the rest was about the bounce.

Ahh cool, I was confused there for a min. Be sure to let me know if that works out for ya cause my truck bounced even before I got the shackles and deavers, it just wasn't as violent when it happened.

Mine did too when stock, but after putting on the PRG Bilsteins, it helped it a lot, 99% eliminated it, but as soon as the 1" mini-pak and TC shackles were added, it was worse than ever.

On a couple of L.A. freeways, it was very bad and got in to an really severe oscillation at around 10 mph in rush hour traffic. If I lived down there I would have done something about it a long time ago, but on the roads I normally drive it's not that bad, just bouncy at some sections/speeds.

Btw, I'm almost afraid to f' with anything, because it handles curvy roads so amazingly well. As for off-road ... no complaints.
