    UGG! Well just got new OME springs and shocks put on the truck yesterday and a few bummers... The new shocks are are scratched to hell so I can only assume they were rolling around the floor or were dropped. When you buy new its nice to have it look new at leasy until you mess or scratch it up...

    More to the problem ... every time I move about, stop, accellerate, turn, bump I seem to hear some crunching coming from the back. Any thoughts as to the noises? I did not hear anything like them on my other truck when I had it installed...

    turns out the metal straps that keep the spring pack together were binding on the springs. Took it back to the shop and the removed, lubricated and reinstalled. So far (7 miles) so good. More to go.
