With a little adjustment you should be good to go.

Sway that doesn't go away after a vehicle passes or you pass is where you want to be careful. You're dragging a box so wind approaching from the sides will pull and push you. If sway generates "on its own" is when you need to dial in your anti sway apparatus. You didn't say what type of wd and sway control you're using.

PS..I don't seem to have too much of a problem with semi's. I think those drivers tend to be aware of the affect they have on us. It's those tour buses that affect me. They fly on the highways.

Some short sway when a large truck/bus passes is normal. Can be managed better with proper hitch setup.
And noise (popping, grinding etc) is not uncommon.

Suggest that you experiment with tire pressures a bit. Sometimes a few PSI can make a difference.

Google "Trailer sway control" for some info.

I don't know what tires you have but when I changed from the stock P metric tires and went with LT E tires it made a huge difference.

All the above with the addition of keep your speed in control. My experience is the higher the speed the more sway I get. Remember the tires more than likely have a max speed range of 65 mph.
Be safe and

Oh and as far as noises... you should hear my Dad's Rage'n toy hauler. That thing sounds like the axles are breaking any time he goes over a speed bump. It's a well built toy hauler but man that thing is noisy!
