Knocking/creaking sound after suspension/gear install
Just to follow up, as it appears from the pictures above, the thru-bolt and surrounding areas are not oval-ed out. Also, the bolts are tightened down correctly.
Slowly but surely, the noise has faded away. I'll try every once and awhile to listen for it while driving, but it's MAYBE 5% of the total noise before. Looks like something had to wear in slightly, just not sure what it is. Any ideas? Do the spherical bearings need to "seat" at all, or maybe the grease slowly got into the spaces of the bearing?
