Welcome to the forum.

This is an older topic, but you'll probably hear from members with trailers like yours. If not, it might help to begin a new topic. Also, it may help others to help you with specifics about when you hear the noise (low speed, high speed, parking lots, backing up, foot on the brake, when releasing the brake, etc.).

Your trailer has the 'spread' axles, correct? The wider spread makes a better ride, but when maneuvering puts more side loading on the tires and axles; that's why posts recommended pulling straight ahead and back before parking after turns. This 'unloads' the side loading of the trailer's leaf springs.

Some WDH (like mine ) make snapping and 'groaning' noises when making slow turns etc. Those noises are easily identified as coming from the hitch, not the trailer suspension. You have probably already eliminated that as the source of the noise

Welcome!

Our White Hawk makes a lot of noise when turning too, especially when the turn is tight. The dealer let us know to expect it as it come with the territory for the wide stance axles. Almost 5,000 miles on her this year with no problems, and we also had the dealer check everything over when we had it in for warranty work at the end of the season and they didn't see anything either. IMO, you don't have anything to worry about, it's "normal".

Welcome. This is a normal thing to notice on wide stance axles. As others have noted the front axle will stress in a turn because it likes to track and it can't.

Our car hauler and utility trailer when loaded heavy will pop and creek.
We have a DSRE White Hawk and have not had any noise.

We first noticed the noise driving straight then backing straight. So it's not just in turns. Does yours do that also? It does not sound right at all to me.

I don't hear any noise while going straight, unless is right after a turn, and in that case it's the suspension 'realigning/unloading' from the turn. Dealer let us know up front to expect the noise when turning and didn't say anything, other than all looks good, when we picked it up after the warranty work.

Not sure about the suspension on this unit so this might not apply. I had popping noise with my camper so I installed a wet bolt kit on the axles and it's gone for good. I did this with very few mile on the camper and the OEM nylon bushings in the shackles were showing enough wear to be the source of the popping sounds.
