Ultegra freehub body: metallic pop(2 posts)

Ultegra freehub body: metallic popDirk Lenart

I had my Ultegra freehub body replaced because it made a metallic popping sound whenever I got out of the saddle and pushed hard on the pedals.
After a few weeks of silence, the new body started to make the same sounds. LBS tells me its useless replacing again, a typical Shimano problem (to which Shimano is stonedeaf).
Any suggestions (tried degreasing and oiling with light oil on former body, to no avail)
