ok this may be a wide open question?
I went to coyote canyon in anza borrego, banged the sliders and hitch 4-5 times good.
now it seems the front suspension (can feel it under my seat area) is creaking with braking to a stop and starts from a dead stop-creaking like something loose or something slightly moving

on hard acceleration I can hear a bit of a rattle for 2 seconds and it is gone. only heard going up a hill or accelerating from a stop. no noise on the h-way or accelerating and passing.

with bumps or compression of the suspension no creaking. just with stop, start or sometimes with turns.

what do you guys think I should look first.
sliders are not loose, there is no rubbing of the sliders.

could it be the body mounts?
there are three oene the drivers side-the first one I can tug and hear a similar creak, but just once.
if I drive it around and get out and under the truck and tug again it creaks-again just once. is this normal?

oh yeah I can hear it over bumps and with the compression of the suspension. but I am not convinced it is the suspension b/c it is not consistent.
