Looks like a great trip Corey

As for the clangs/pops/creaks/etc - I know on my truck when dirt or whatever works its way under the springs, I get some really odd and awful "twanging" noises (best descriptive word I can think of ) when a side/corner is "unweighted" - You might try power hosing off the spring perches or give them a liberal does of WD40 or similar - that seems to do the trick for me
