Grease the shit outta them Bro! Had the problem with mine for a while. Make sure the shackles are torqued properly and nice and tight.

Either that or the clamps might be causing a lil bit of binding. You know from being tight and limiting their flexibilty a lil bit going up an incline at an angle. You should try the overload removal, bet you'd like it dawg.

Yeah I have been thinking of doing it.One weekend Ill say I'll do it but im nervous I will mess up my entire rear suspension.I was also thinking if I put the Overload and the one before it over the other two,too see if I got another few inches of drop.But I might just lose the clamps and just do the shackles.And if my nerves die off I will do the leaf removal :p Do you think if I do a leaf removal and a 1.5 inch front drop it would look lower and leveled?

I would stick with just the overload. It gets more complex removing the middle leafs etc. Plus you only wanna pull one leaf, anymore is not good. The shackles with overload removal will pretty much level you up. If you drop the front 1.5" you will have a rake again, but it will still look good.

Double check and make sure that your bolt is in the right way on the shackle also. I installed mine and had the top bolt in wrong and it was a NASTY noise!!! I had to pull the shackle off and reinstall the top bolt first. You will see a mark on your frame if its wrong. Common problem
