    2 days ago my 2005 107,000mi Tacoma started making loud banging noises when I hit bumps. At first it sounds like the exhaust pipe but I pretty much ruled that out. Its not my hitch either. It bangs on the "up" and "down" of hitting a bump. Like something is in suspension that is banging on two objects top and bottom. I researched so in the morning I will check the shock bushings and give the leaf a closer inspection. I can't afford to pay the dealership. Please help!

    A little lift & some extra steel....
    Are the U bolts holding the spring pack tight? Are you sure one of the exhaust brackets has not come loose & maybe the pipe is moving around?

    Wow. Thanks for the quick advice! I checked the spare and it's solid. It would make sense that a bracket for the exhaust would be an issue since I just had a new muffler put on but Ive shaken the shit outta it with no noise. Also, you would think since hitting bumps makes the noise that I could duplicate it by jumping on/shaking the truck but I can't. This noise seems to come very easily on small bumps even at low speeds. I'll check the u bolts in the morn.
    Again, i really appreciate any advice. It's 2am and I'm stressing it so much I can't sleep. Fml

    I finally found out what it was! I got my wife to go back and forth over a speed bump and noticed that one of my leaf springs had a broken leaf! It just snapped in the middle. Ive never even heard of that. I have over loaded my trailer (that I haul alot) a few times and I bet it couldnt keep up. Thanks guys!
