That makes me think it's a shock problem. If you can isolate the noise to a specific shock, remove that shock only and see how the suspension responds to the same bumper-jumper test.

Your clip sounds like stiction from really dry or dirty seals. Can you spray a dry lube on the shaft and try to cycle the shock?

Did the truck and shocks sit for an extended period of time? Few weeks to a month or two?

Lets hear your best educated guess.

Its an 07 with non-TSB rear leafs running the Icon AAL with their 2.0 Smooth body.

rear shackle, loosen all the bolts and use this, let dry and re-tighten, do this upfront next, repeat, then try the leafs with this same spray on lube.

And yes, this stuffs works very very well.

But its not the leafs. The leafs move quietly with no shock in there. And make an ass load of noise with the shock installed

The U-bolt flip kit does NOT add any hieght. It only adds a little ground clearance right where the current u-bolt plate is.

For the uniballs spray it down with water and lube with the stuff Socaltaco65 suggested.

I bought them in November. As far as I know they are not the re-branded Edlebrocks

I already asked this before but didn't get too many responses. My current coils are saggy as hell on my SAW's and I'm gonna go ahead and replace them. Someone recommended to me that I step up to a 14" spring since the current ones are 13"s and have to be special ordered. Is it a good Idea to go from a 13"x3.0"x650# up to a 14"x3.0"x650# ??? Thoughts???

^ I was thinking something similar to this:

If you can get a light coat on the shaft of the shock where it meets the body, you can cycle it and get rid of your noise problem.

I say Nitrogen is low, this could easily be confirmed by removing the shocks and compressing them to see if the have difficulty returning or can return at all. If its not the Nitrogen, which is a super easy and cheap fix, then its the seals.

The spring went down a little on the first jump likely due to being slightly over tightened at the shackle eye or having dirty ass crap rubber stock bushings that are warn OR combination of both. This doesn't look odd to me at all, seen it a ton of times.

As I mentioned before, check the PSI on the shocks. Its a process of elimination, solve the rebound issue first and then move on to the noise. If the shocks don't maintain pressure, call Icon and bitch.

Best of luck

How would a low nitrogen charge create that noise?

Are you saying that an over tightened lower bolt could make the shock make that noise and not return to ride height??

yes. Going from a 13" shock with preload on it to a 14" shock with no preload on it will make your ride smoother

sounds to me what he is saying is that unless the shock is seized up, then the no matter what, the springs should return the truck to its original height. An easy test ..... take your shocks back out and jump on the truck again and see if you still have problems with the suspension height returning. If so, then obviously there is something wrong with the springs, possibly the shackles being tightened too much, like he said. If the ride height immediately returns and u have already concluded that the shocks are the cause of the noise, then apparently the shocks solely are created the ride height not to return and the noise.
