Default noise after RCX 6" lift, anyone else?



Hi.

Just finished my 6" suspension lift. And did a alignment.
Very happy, until I heard a "clunk"-noise when braking.

Tried to reproduce the noise, and after a while I noticed:

If you make a hard acceleration, and the apply brake, even a little brakingforce, there will be this clunk-noise.

Gentle/normal acc. and there will be NO clunk.
I think, but this can be difficult I know, that the noise is coming from the rear end. But might aswell be the front end.

So, I need to know if anyone else has experience this after a lift ?

check your sway-bar link ends. I know sounds funny. but i had the same-thing happen to me. i had my lift on for 6k miles and them i wall pulling out of somewhere and herd a clunk braking and acceleration. had my Buddie shake the truck sure as crap the pass side lower and upper sway-bar link nuts are loose. funny thing i never loosened the sway-bar link when i installed my bilstein 2,8 in. and it is was loose a lot. the nuts are physically tight. but their is a gap between the bushings and the sway-bar. 1/2 inch or so. and was enough to make a clunking sound when braking accelerating and even turning.

Hi, and thanks!

Just to clearify, we are talking you front-end I assume, since you said bilsteins?
