    Can confirm. I only did the back wall, roof, and front doors and it was a full day operation.

    By bottoming out, I mean bottoming out internally on full extension, not compression. Everything is nice and tight.

    Same crap everyone else got
    Put your truck on jacks and compress the front end on one side then let it drop to see if you can hear the same noise. I had a rear shock that would top out on travel extension even though the spring had more in it (shock was too short basically) and it made a noise but it was a different sounding noise.

    Also did you get extended travel shocks or just the regular one?

    I haven’t done, and sadly never will because I know it will be a time consuming PITA. But damn if I wouldn’t love to have it done. I can’t even hear my daughter talking to me in her car seat behind me if it’s raining.

    I’ll give you a hand if you ever change your mind on it. Just the roof was a world of difference. Mostly eliminated the hollow tin-can sound that thin metal makes. Wasn’t particularly expensive either, though I went a budget route. The roof by itself would probably be a couple hours start to finish, not too bad.

    I may take you up on that. I’ve got a sunroof, so maybe that’ll cut down on the material costs and install time :rofl:

    It seems to me that most clunks after a suspension lift install is the cam bolts on the lower control arm. Either they weren't torqued to spec or the alignment tech thinks he is better than a torque wrench.

    Check to make sure those are to spec. That's where I would start. Also just make sure all the other bolts are tight while you are in there.

    To date, I've installed sound deadening mat on my doors and the back wall. It made a difference, but wasn't mind blowing. I still hear more road noise than I would like. If I decide to go further, I've heard the floor board closest to the firewall makes a big difference there. So I'd kind of like to do up there and the roof.

    Accutune confirmed that internally, Kings will have metal on metal contact under full extension. I believe that’s what it is. Just don’t know if it’s bad for it or not. Going to measure my shock length and see if it’s sitting under 21” per their recommendation

    Yeah I'd check and make sure.

    I had an OME that the internal stopper was a little shorter than the other or something and it sheared it off the shaft and gave a little more travel. :rofl:

    And that's why limiting straps can be a good investment in certain situations.

    All my rigs are purpose built. From crawling to camping. I also enjoy a nice stock truck for what that’s worth. Toyota’s are the jam!
