Thanks for providing that information.
At 65K I would first suggest changing shocks. Yes, that is enough mileage to have them beginning to get "softer" which will increase suspension travel and noise.
Even though they may test good (usual test is jumping on the bumper to see how it responds after bouncing) but that really doesn't apply to shock/strut combinations.
I would suggest a higher then factory grade replacement shock. Do realize 60% of the weight for that vehicle is in the front.
Next, there is always some, what they call "spring seating" as a vehicle gets older. You will notice it more when the suspension is in a turn, going over a bump. The spring moves / rotates in the seat, and you will hear a sometimes loud popping or clicking noise.
Bushings are probably best left to the professionals, unless you happen to have a well equipped shop at home.Same goes for the struts. You will need a good spring compressor to be able to change them, and you will need to have an alignment done after changing them. Doing the bushings at the same time is easy once the struts are out.
Since it is 4WD you mine want to test the front CV joints also. If you have access to a lift, put it in the air so all 4 wheels are off the ground, and running it. Listen to each front wheel to see if you can hear any CV noise. Please be very careful doing this. Doing it incorrectly can result in injury.
What you want to do more then anything is take this a step at a time. When you hear a noise inside a car, it can sound like it is coming from one place, and you can find out later, it is somewhere else.
I think a Haynes manual is going to be a good guide for you on this problem.
Take you time, and be very careful doing this kind of work. If at anytime you are not 100% comfortable doing the work, consult a professional.
Sorry I can't be more help as a simple fix, but I'm limited diagnosing any further without have the vehicle at my access.

yes you must have a leak somewhere. maybe in the air bags or the lines. jack up the car while there is still air in the bags get some soapy water in a spray bottle and start spraying the air bag and lines and pump until you find the leak. then replace whats needed.

Just behind right rear tire up in the wheel well. Air inlet is inside right rear quarter near the accessory inflator. Compressor runs 3 lines one for the accessory inflator and one for each air bag.
THere are also 2 sensors, one on each trailing arm that senses load and then raises and lowers accordingly.

Depends on what needs to be done. For prices that blow dealers out of the water go to arnott.com or suncoreindustires.com

they are bolted in a not to hard to remove once the air is drained from them however you can not drive it without the air bags. It will bounce way to much to control the truck.
