Lift on, strange noises from rear

2" BDS Lift. Wheels are balanced, and aligned. Drives fine. Handles fine.

But, when starting in first, I am getting a vibration, banging, thud noises from the rear end. Seems to be comming from the right-rear, but sounds are hard to isolate. Seems to be more noticeable the more the load. Sounds as it someone is taping with a mutted hammer in the rear somewhere.

I have a trac bar relo bracket. My first thought was that the right tire was hitting, but the clearance is the same on both sides and no signs of a rub.

Any thoughts?

Look at your rear shock and see if there are signs of the exhaust pipe rubbing / rattling on the shock. Common with OEM exhaust. I solved it by getting a Magnaflow cat-back.

Great thought! I just looked and I have about an inch of clearance and no marks on the white painted shock. But, when I bang on the exhaust, it rattles. I wonder if that is it.
