    I have noticed that as I turn right slowly into a driveway thats a little steep, I hear a "springy" noise from what sounds like the right rear shock. I'm not quite sure what exactly this means, but I'm pretty sure this isn't normal. What do I do to relieve the "springy" noise? (lubricate the shock? replace my struts and socks because my front struts are rusting?)

    It may be your leaf springs squeaking. Get someone to jump up and down on the bed while you watch and listen to see if you can replicate it.
