I have a 07' W24 Workhorse chassis under a Dolphin Coach. I have about 3,000 miles on the unit and the right front suspension has started making a popping noise from the area of the front passengers wheel area. I walked along side the coach while the wife drove the coach slowly, rolling both forward and backwards.
I read an earlier post that mentioned simular problems and it was mentioned to lift the coach off the ground and look at the shakels for wear and that there was a "kit" to fix the wear problem. When I looked there, there is nylon spacers in each the front and rear spring shakels.
Is there another possible problem location?

Mine did the same thing, drove me crazy. I had the spacers also but the springs still popped. I used a can of Quickee step spay grease to lube the ends of the springs and the area around the shackels.It solved my problems, nice and quiet now. Every now and then I re-lube, especilaly after driving in rainy conditions

I'll try that, I'd like to avoid taking it to the shop.

Thanks

Just a sugestion:
Lift your unit with the jacks first. This will allow the lube to get in between the leaves. I also used Castrol Chain Lube. It lasts for about 1 year.

Better yet, I'll do that.

Any time out of the shop is more time for to use it.

Thanks,
