    Default popping sound when I turn left

    This past week I've noticed a popping sound towards the back right of my truck when ever I turn left. If I take a hard left, such as through an intersection it will take about 100 yards until Ill hear the sound. If I take easier left like changing lanes our around a soft bend it happens earlier, after I straiten out. I noticed my bottom/smallest leaf spring on my back right frame is not as lined up as I guess it should be. Its an '08 has about 40,000 miles on it. I'm going to take it in but I thought I would check here first. One other thing, I was driving on the beach this past weekend, I don't know if that has something to do with it but I think it started some time after that. Thanks for any help.

    Couple of things...

    1) Only make right turns like the UPS driver does.
    2) Maybe power wash the underside, wheels, rear end, etc to get rid of the squeeky sand.

    I'm leaning more this way than sand. Doesn't seem like sand would cause a popping sound...

    Thanks for the advise guys. I do think the sand might just be a coincidence. I'm probably going to get it look at tomorrow.

    Sounds like you'll need the rear leaf spring u-bolts re-torqued. I had similar popping sounds all the time going over bumps while braking or up drive ways while turning...tighten down my leaf springs, and now I rarely hear it, if at all.

    Come on guys, it's a 4wd truck. Some people actually use their 4wd other than to have the flashy chrome badge on the back - which some take off anyway.

    You don't have to tell them you had it in the sand, but if they ask there's no reason to lie to them. Heck, you're not under warranty anyway.

    Bad wheel bearing maybe... seems like this is becoming a common failure among these trucks now. Oddly enough b/c the wheel bearings are the size of a SD.

    And yes, I hope somebody comments on the last statement that's in Italics.
