This past week i added DSM upper control arms and 285/65-18" tires to my truck. I also cranked down my Icon extended coilovers from 1.75" and 1.5" thread to 2.25" and 2" thread showing. Now the icon literature said 2" of thread max but i spoke with them and they said that is old literature and that as long as you have 2" of downtravel that is what they recommend, and i have just a hair over that. Now another thing i did was grease up my UCAs after i installed them, and not beofre i assembled them.
So anyways...now when i start off from a stop i hear a little creeking in the front, checked over everything and it's all tight. I'm not sure if this is because of the weight/size of the new tires (i had stock size on before with this lift, and this is the first time i've ever added bigger tires to a truck), or if it's because my UCAs possible need more lube since i lubed them up after i installed them. Could also be that my coilovers are just wearing in to the new position as well, or maybe it's just the bushings on them.
Think it's anything to worry about? Any possible suggestions. I first thing i'm going to do it hit the UCAs with more greese since maybe they will take a little more now that they've had some travel to them
