Default possible souluton for metal on metal sound

When i installed my groubd force lowereing kit on my 2010 sport i had a harsh metal on metal sound comming from the rear of the truck, I though everything was tight as i used an impact and thought to have everything properly torqued to spec, later on i found that my passenger side rear top shock mount was a little loose, and just because of that shock mount was 5 lbs off of spec it made a horrible sound, metal on metal, hope this helps, you should also check where your rear sway bar mounts to the frame, that could also make a metal on metal sound aswell, and just for confirmation my truck was lowered 3 inches in the rear and i never touched my mag hytec diff cover with the track or anti sway bar even when towing.
