    I just installed my 5100s with Eibach coils myself about a week ago and now there is some "creaking" coming from the front during initial take off/turning...

    Has anyone else experienced this problem or have any suggestions as to what it might be?

    Do you have stock UCA's? What are your 5100's set at?

    Sorry, I have the stock UCAs and the 5100s are at 0".

    I had the same creaking sound every time I would start moving from stopped, and it would be worse when going over uneven terrain especially when turning. I tracked it down to my UCA bushings. Just greased 'em up and she rides smooth now. I also am running the 5100's at 0, but with OME 885 coils. If you have the stock UCA's and it wasn't creaking before, I'm not sure.

    You might want to ask Chris 4x4, he's helped me out a lot and he's the suspension master.
