having full time 4x4 make a difference bout shocks... It could have something to do with your gas tank... the fill tubes go from that side down over the tire into the tank. Maybe your gas cap isn't sealing properly? I dunno if you have a zj, wj or wk but if you have a wj (99-04) there is a fuel filter behind the frame rail in that corner that could maybe make noise ?

it could be many. i agree with the shocks. it could be the vent for your gas take but i doubt you can hear it. check for air in your brake lines.

Most likely a vaccum leak
