My suspension rattles & makes a lot of noise while driving in the city i.e. over small bumps etc. Are there any common bolts that become loose or anything that needs to be tighten? Any particular areas? The rattles mainly comes from under the bed or around the rear axle.

2009 Pro4X 4x4 KC

Thanks!

Another idea:
Do you have the Utilitrack in your bed...and if so, are the plastic bed-track inserts slid in? These can slide fore/aft (mostly aft) and make a racket over bumps. IFF so, simply remove them for a proper troubleshoot.

I have them. I want to say there are plastic black inserts at the end of them towards the tailgate. Sometimes I have seen them move around but the sounds I am hearing sound more suspension related. I'll definitely check it out!

Do you think it's possible to put my GoPro underneath my truck to capture video? I don't know how well the audio will work due to the protective case around it. I am just thinking outside the box.

Update: Rattle looks to have been fixed whenever my two rear shocks were replaced - they were leaking oil at 105k miles.

My "rattle" is broken leafson one side. I've been told this was caused by my 3"AAL kit being on worn out springs...Anyone else have similar issues?
