    It is most likely the bushings in the shocks making the noise or coming from the front leaf springs. Ford had a revised shim kit for the super duties a couple years back for noise coming from the leaf springs. You can spray some WD40 on the shock bushings first, if that does'nt help then spray the bushings and plastic pads between the leaf springs.

    We run F550 Tow Trucks at work and there was a spring insulator kit to eliminate that.
