    i have an 09 4x4, i put a 2.5 inch spacer lift on it, when i turn left its sounds like there is some kind of clunking noise or metal to metal contact, i checked all of my components and everything seems to be ok except for my driverside ball joint, it seems to be leaking. i have had this lift for about 2000 miles never had any issues untill now. and just to be honest.... i didnt get an alignment after the lift. so any sugestions?

    If it is leaking and you are hearing a metal to metal contact, it is going to need replaced.

    Can you post pics of it?
