I checked everything I could before heading to the dealer. I read other posts and it seems like a broken spring inside is the probable cause. Will try to get in at other dealers as it is a warranty issue.

I woke up and found the nearest do it yourself carwash and gave it a quick wash. It rained when I left home yesterday and made the truck look horrible by the time I made it here.

I had one of life's dumb moments last weekend and long story short ripped off my drivers side front mudflap and the other small piece of plastic that wraps around under the wheel well. To my surprise when I pulled it back it was full of crusted on dirt


It was blocking the little drain at the bottom and rusting the metal inside so I cleaned it out


After that I reattached the mud flaps but instead of the cheap ass way it was done before with plastic clips I pushed in a couple easy anchors to allow some give if it ever caught again an then put in a small bolt.


Its much more solid now. I recommend people check that plastic piece on the wheel well and the little drain. Little bit of work that could prevent a ton of rust IMO

Changed one of the rear leaf spring shackles. PIA job. Had to buy new bushings too because they were destroyed in the deconstruction. Will do the other side soon. It should be easier, faster next time.
