Hello all, Hey anyone get this annoying cluck sound coming from the leaf springs It happens everytime I turn. I have tried taking them apart and greased them the sound stopped for 2 days. If I WD-40 the crap out of the leafs it'll stop for a couple of days also. Any clues guys this is just driving me crazy.

The leaf springs on the X are the noisiest I have ever heard. It seems any bit of dust in there makes them squeak. Whenever I go wheeling I come back sounding like a 50 year old rust bucket. People actually stare at me because of the noise! It gets better when it's washed and sprayed down (the spring pack that is) but is never completely quiet.

I've also heard the clunks, but they are off and on and seem random, plus I have no idea where they come from.

I've just gotten used to it all...
