    placing this in suspension just as a hunch I think it might be. Today, I noticed over small bumps (CO soil for ya) I heard what sounds almost like something rubbing a tire...like if you were to spin a bicycle tire and slow it down with something on top of it if that makes sense? I brushed it off the first time, but then I heard it again...sounds like it's coming from the rear.
    I took it over a few speed bumps at a slow speed to try and duplicate it, but I can't ...any thoughts?

    Can it be mud or something it may be rubbing against?

    Ya, straight.
    Think I found it! The housing came off, I bet it was the shock was rubbing on it. I just got a heavy duty zip tie and replaced it.

    Thoughts?

    I have some noises that sound like rear suspension as well. Need to check it out soon.

    When you get older you won't hear any of this stuff. Just chill a few more years. (what did you say? huh? what?)
