a couple .clunk

So it seems that since I loaded the Looney tune (love it) when the truck is put in reverse it clunks into it. It doesnt happen every time, but it does happen enough for me to wonder about it. Any one else have this situation, or know what is up with it? I assume it doesnt have anything to do with the tune since I am the person putting it in reverse and drive.

Also I noticed when I am on the freeway or something and I take my foot off the gas I hear a tiny clunk. U joint? I have no idea. I am new to lifted trucks so maybe its something different.

Last one LOL. while I am driving at any speed. I hear what sounds like metal rubbing. It sounds like the dust shield is comming in contact with the rotor. it doesnt go away when I press the brake and the faster I drive the faster the sound goes. I am assuming its something that is spinning due to the fact that wheel speed has an effect on the noise.

sorry for all the questions at once, but as soon as I started writing the first one the others came into my head.

Sounds to me that you are having a carrier bearing issue. How much lift and was the carrier dropped any?

Check the parts already mentioned, also check all u-joints, ball joints, and if your feeling ambitious drop the drive shaft and lube the splines.

Also check track bar, sway bay drop links/bushings.
