Fabtech lift makes funny noise when going over bump??

Fabtech lift makes funny noise when going over bump??

Postby jcblanco [OP] » Apr 20 2011, 2:46am

I just got this truck about a week ago and every time I go over a speed bump or a large dip in the road the front of my suspension makes this funny noise. It almost sounds like the engine is banging against the hood or something in the front. I don't know what it is but I think it's a 3 or 4 inch fabtech lift. Sooooo if Anyone has had a similar issue let me know and how much to fix it. Thanks chan

Could it be your front shocks topping out?

Sound is subjective. I am just suggesting a possible cause based on my experience with people installing lift kits. Nothing more.
