    Okay what could be causing this clunk on the rear passenger wheel?

    This occurs when I'm driving up an inclined surface on the passenger side. When the rear wheel hits the inclined surface, it makes a clunk.

    This is the only scenario that this clunk occurs.

    check your shock for signs of leakage and check all bolts for tightness
    check your leaf pack as well.......

    What if a shock has been leaking for a long time.. doesn't that stuff eventually dry up? what sign to look for? My truck's undercarriage is a mess after the dealer sprayed that frame coating... everything is covered in black gummy crap.

    Okay how 'bout this?

    When I get step into the drive seat and sit down with some force, it rocks the truck, and sometimes enough such that the rear passenger side would make a poping noise, probably the same noise as I described above.

    So given that scenario, in the very specific way of rocking the truck, what could be moving to create the popping noise?
