Hi guys does anyone know what could make the springs start making a click & snap noise when I'm raising or lowering to hook up CT29RLX ? This just started since we got home from Kerrville Tx .

Sometimes, as things loosen up, these kinds of sounds appear and they are benign, but it's important that you and the DW (Dear Wife) do a little investigating. You'll need to have the DW raise and lower the trailer with the tongue jack. (the easy part) You on the otherhand will have to get down on the ground and listen for the noises that you mentioned and see where they are coming from and look for any obvious physical or mechanical problems like broken welds or loose U-bolt clamps etc. If you find anything obvious, get it to your dealer ASAP for repair.

If you guys don't have the wet bolt in your suspension that might be the reason for the noise.
