There has been an issue with some leaf bolts not up to torque specs, and needing to be tightened. I would check that first. If not, some white lithium grease will help you isolate where it may be coming from.
This was a topic on results from my catch can, and invite others to share theirs. There are other threads dealing with pros, cons, and right or wrong. If y'all want to talk about that, cool. Go have your "who's is bigger" contest in the appropriate thread please.
I can tell you generically we see this a lot with all kinds of trucks that have rear leaf springs. As mentioned, re torque the u bolt nuts. If you don't have a torque wrench, arc them about a quarter of turn.
I installed mine on my 2020 Sierra 5.3 at about 1,500 miles. At 5,500 miles I decided to check it. So after 4,000 miles this is what I found; about half full which seemed to be 2 to 3 ounces. That’s a fair amount of oil and it’s even more important to catch it on DI engines.
Interesting. They can usually be cleaned out through the drain hole. Would have to be something misassembled or misaligned with it being so new. Dash tear downs usually leave you with squeaks and rattles. Good luck.
Back in or pull through as if you backed in wherever you can. People will park close next to you, or not pull up far enough across from you making it tight to back out. And take your turns a hair wider. After a few days of getting used to the handling and size, you won't notice.
For me the tailgate is a big help. I use my truck everyday for work, and my guys load and unload heavy items. Dropping the upper tailgate makes it much easier as you can get closer to the bed, and don't have to reach so far. I have some back issues, so it's much easier to climb in via the Multi pro step that than the corner steps for me. Also, dropping the upper gate makes it a lot easier to load and secure long items such as lumber. To each their, own, but for me it works.
