    Ok about three weeks ago backing in the driveway I would hear a popping sound I thought was the front hubs. It was only when backing up and turning the wheels, the driveway has a slight incline not more than a foot rise over 30’. Took it to the dealer and left it they said front hubs fine but was coming from the rear leaf springs they tightened everything up. I brought it home same popping/creaking noise when backing in the driveway. Anyone having anything like this with there Deavers +3? Just curious where to look next? Thanks guys.

    It sounds like your rear springs. Maybe need to clean them or lube up the shackles, bushings, etc.

    My thoughts exactly I’m also thinking of changing out the stock shackles to maybe the SVC Shackles. Pro/Cons?

    I don't have Deavers, all stock for me, but I have noticed a similar noise and also have a thread about it. I will be curious to know if you find what it is.

    The pro is they are better built than stock, no negatives bro! They aren't the only player in town either for those, so shop around for the best price.

    Also, this is a Gen 3 forum. Gen 2 forum might have more helpful info/insight.
