I know it sounds nutty 馃お but the doors are a major source of unidentified noises in these things.

My passenger door seemed tight but would make a screeching sound when I would hit a bump on that side. I swore it was coming from the bed, suspension, sway bar, etc. but it ended up just being the door. A minor adjustment, some duct tape on the striker and all was good.

To diagnose if the passenger door is the culprit, have someone hold it tight when you hit a bump on that side and see if the noise changes or is eliminated. If you don't have anyone to do this, pop the door off and go for a ride and see what you hear.

You need to connect the limit straps to the shock bolts, as it is a "shock extension" limit, not an "axle drop" limit needed on this type of suspension.

Extension Limit: Protecting shocks from reaching full extension under rapid spring unload.
Drop Limit: Protecting U-joints from binding driveline angles, due to excessive axle drop.
