    Had the rear spring TSB done about a week ago- pleased with the improvement.

    I am noticing a sound that I never heard before- a rattle/ clunk that sounds like it is below and well in back of the back seat, but not all the way at the back of the truck.

    It occurs on medium bumps, especially if there is a sharpness to the bumps (like washboard unpaved road), not on small bumps and not on large bumps.

    It's a lot like the sound of a receiver hitch clunk from the slight slack between hitch and receiver, except not as far in the back, and there is nothing in my hitch receiver.

    Never heard this before the spring TSB was installed.

    Any suggestions on what to check?

    Thanks!

    I know you said its not all the way in the back but I had a similar issue and realized it was my ball mount in the trailer hitch bouncing over bumps. Might not be the same issue but just figured I put that out there.

    On mine it was the exhaust pipe. It would move quite easy. As I have driven it its gotten better. Not sure if it applies or if they removed yours. Mine had the clutch tsb
    done on it the same time.
