Is it only when you shift the transmission into reverse? Or is it while you are on the gas while in reverse? Need more details.

One of your blocks could be cracked. One of mine did when I had blocks.

If the wheel was hoppin up and down it probably the noise from the leafs clickin/slappin together and resonating through the bed.

I think alot of people are running james duff traction bars. I never looked into them.

But I'm almost certain thats the noise you are hearing, wheel hop from the axle wrap. I had axle wrap bad when I had 3" blocks on factory springs.
