    so just got back from a trip up north to my friends cabin up in long valley, while driving back to one of our spots where we have built a track there is a hump that u must go over, but i have to go at a slight angle over it because if i go strait over it i will get high centered, right when the hump is exactly underneath my truck(spot when the truck is most flexed) there is a horrible pop noise that comes from the rear, almost sounds like something is binding, but i cant feel the pop in the truck i can only hear it. i get out check everything, it all looks good, drove 200 miles home and truck felt just as good as ever. this is the third time this has happened over the same spot, the noise worrys me greatly and i dunno how to go about taking care of it, i cant just tell the dealer to go off road my truck till they hear it pop haha.

    anyways its an 08 reg cab pre runner, thanks in advance for any help guys

    wat?
    maybe its the shock fully extending? when i had the tsb+2" blocks under the back of the 07, i was fully extending the shocks just by going over a speed bump too fast.

    so its no big deal? fully extending the shocks will make the poping noise happen?

    I belive the Reg. Cabs. are exempt. You could let the dealer know that your truck is sagging with a load and see if they will help. :)
