I installed Belltech shackles, and ow when I go over bumps or small ditchs like concrete drains and an angle, I get this metallic rubbing sound from the rear. Is this typical of these shackles? If I straight over things there is no noise, only when I go at an angle.

No, didn't know I had to grease them. Thought they were pregreased. But they don't make any noise when I go straight or if I bounce the bed?

did you tighten them while they were in the air? if so, untighten them and tighten them with the weight on the leaf springs (truck sitting normal..not jacked up).
No, I tightened them while the truck was sitting on the ground. I wonder if I over tightended them?

Well, it ended up being the driver side rear tire rubbing on the top plastic peice of my airbag. So when I would go over bumps at an angle the tire would come up and hit it. I trimmed it back, and we are all good now.

Thanks!!!
