I was looking at those earlier today and they appeared fine. They have only been on the truck for 15K so far. I never had the clunk before I changed the suspension. I guess I will just have to wait until this weekend to find out.

Thanks! I was having all kinds of popping after an alignment. I guess they didnt torque the LCA bolts down, cause that fixed it for me.

Thanks!

Nearly 6 months later, I still have the noise. No amount of tightening or adjusting has remedied this sound for me. However, I think I may have located what is causing the sound. Again, I have Eibach coils with 5100's at 0.85" and the sound seems like it's coming from the driver's side which has a 0.25" lean spacer added in. I'm thinking some of these impact's are causing some chattering between the Coilover, spacer, and coil bucket. I'm going to take it apart in a few weeks when I have time and see if that's the issue.

I've been getting a nasty popping sound when turning ever since my recent alignment. I'm hoping this is the problem/solution. Going to craw underneath tomorrow and torque them down.

UCA bolt was slightly loose. I already checked them!!!!!! Anyway, went driving and no noise! I can't believe a slightly loose UCA bolt was making all the noise!

Anyway, lesson learned. Check and re-check.

Thanks very much for the feedback guys.
Any idea how I know what the UCA bolt is? I'm not really sure what I'm looking at but I have the same noise.

Thanks!

I'm having the same issue I have the Bilsteins and Eibach coils set at .85. Added a top 1/2 spacer and recently started to do a popping noise when I go over small bumps but on the road its fine. I have stock UCA's should I recheck all my bolts to see if this is my problem also do I need a sway bar relocate kit?
