      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

2004 Silverado - Back end Noise

Recommended Posts

I have a rattle in the rear end of my '04 Silverado that I havent been able to locate. It occurs virtually anytime I hit a bump. My first inclination is that it might be the brake pads rattling. (I did replace them last Fall) However, the noise is there even if I am applying the brakes. I have looked things over and dont find any obvious problems with the shocks, springs or anything else. The shocks do seem a bit weak, and probably need to be replaced, but they dont appear to loose or broken. Any suggestions or things other folks have found??

Check the box mounts also.

Best thing would be to try and have some ride around in box and see if you can pin point a location of noise.

I should have said check the box mounts and mounting hardware. We had a 2003-2004 F-150 once that has a mysterious rattle and I drove a tech around in the box and he pinpointed to a loose mount and rattling washer.

Good luck!

I had a noise in the back of my Silverado that took me a while to pin point also. Thought it was loose shock because it would happen every time I would his a bump. Not sure if there is a name for them but it ended up being the bump stops on the leaf springs clicking every time they were compressed. Endedn up cutting up an old rubber tube and using a few tie wraps to hold them in place. No more noise.

"Leaf Spring Isolators" is what I believe they are called on Chevy's.

Good call dude!

Good idea, that is about where I thought the noise was coming from originally, thats why I was thinking possibly a broken spring or shock. The isolators are still there and I looked them over pretty good, and was a bit suspicious of them. I will put some rubber padding in there and see if that helps.

    • Wild playing very well in all facets of the game right now...fun to watch...Toronto is no slouch even without Matthews.
    • And if you went to Italy, they have all that stuff that is bitter.  It is a matter of taste for sure.   BTW, hops is (or was) added to beer as a preservative as well as a flavor.   Personally I don't care for that weird stuff, but do like an IPA on occasion, or a Grain Belt for old time's sake.   
    • Yes. And if you got to the southwest part of the country they have some of the best wine on the planet as well. I was introduced to German beer there in the 80's and it was a learning experience. Bars with room temp kegs and either Dunkel or Licht beer. They know how to do it right.
    • I haven't seen that happen in the collagen casings I have used but if it seems to be an issue maybe try vacuum sealing any left over casings until the next time.
    • I hear ya Dave !  I spent close to 3 years in Germany and drank a lot of different brands of German beer and never had anything taste as bad as an IPA. In our town of around 100,000 we had 3 breweries and if you went 20 miles to another town the odds are you would not find the any of the 3 beers but completely different breweries. 3 beers always for the most part...Weitzen (wheat), Weise ( Normal) and Pils and all only had 4 ingredients and no preservatives. 
    • Mine lasted 5 years, then broke on the lake, but I got two new ones the week before. Lucked out I guess.
    • That's because this is the cooking thread and not Silly Town. Plenty of whining be-oches to argue with over there all day!
    • You guys must have a nicer wife than I've got. By the end of the day I'm worn out from arguing with her and come here for a break. Seems like the opposite on here sometimes. 
    • Yes, we buy the spray cans of olive oil,canola or whatever. I personally haven't tried fish but with breaded chicken I'm not a big fan. It works great when I make wings and non battered chicken. Just my personal experience.
    • That is a thing of beauty. I am speechless and if you know me........
