    It's axle wrap. It'll either cause problems or it won't.

    It happened to me, it was a broken leaf spring, the one in the middle of three leafs. I had a hard time to find it because it was hidden, until I saw that the middle leaf wasn't like at the right position, it was off to the side by 1/4 inches of other leafs. It was broke just after the U-bolt.

    It took me 2 months to find it since I heard the first noise. Cost me around 100$ to fix it.

    Thanks for the serious reply's. Will look into the leaf springs. Gas volume did not seem to be a problem.
