I just checked everything the leaf springs shackles and dump, subframe and everything. but one thing stood out,the leaf spring clamps were rusty and worn out of the helper springs. So I bought new clamps and put them on.

-How tight should the helper springs be when i put the new clamps on?

The dump bed is what is making the noise. I drove a dump truck for a few years and know the sound.
