Hows it going all!
This is the problem I'm having, every time I go over a small lip or divet in the road ie : a drive way lip , a bridges block seam, a small pot hole.
Front goes over fine then when my rear goes over I hear a chirp ... just one
Setup
icon stage 4
Aiftlift bags
Is this somthing known/or experienced. And can be fixed or is this something like a shock needs to be rebuilt?

I was getting a bit of squeak on the OEM rear springs, sounds similar. Narrowed it down by bouncing the rear of the truck in the driveway, was in the driver's side spring pack or rear bushings. Sprayed both with silicone spray and took it to full flex on the trail a few times, not a sound since.

I tried bouncing but cannot recreate the sound , only seem to happen on small sharp imperfections on the road. I will keep trying trough

I'd guess something in a shock then, but could be as simple as a squeak in an exhaust hanger. Just to cover your bases let it cool completely the crawl under and wiggle anything that can move like exhaust, spare tire, etc.
